How does Smiles 4 Canada evaluate my application?

There are 3 stages to the evaluation process:

  1. Administrative review, to ensure the application is complete. Incomplete applications will not be submitted to the Regional Committee and will be returned to you.
  2. Regional Committee review, to verify financial eligibility, estimate the scope of the treatment, and assess its likelihood of success in light of your child's general dental health, motivation and character.
  3. Matching with a participating orthodontist. If your child is accepted, we will try and find a volunteer orthodontist close to your location who is able to undertake the treatment. To assist this orthodontist, we will share the patient information, personal statement, digital photos, signed/initialed program rules, expectations and release and dental examination forms with him/her. This orthodontist will meet with you and your child to discuss the potential treatment plan options. If a volunteer is not immediately available, you will be wait-listed, and we will attempt to give you an estimate of how long you may have to wait.
