What is Smile Factories?
Smile Factories was initiated to continue the wonderful dental care provided by the Give Kids A Smile volunteers during the Biannual Events in February and October. Many of our children need treatment not completed during the short three hour appointments we have at St. Louis University. These Smile Factory candidates are then reviewed and a selected number of these children with genuine need can be referred to private offices throughout the St. Louis Metropolitan area and their treatment then completed in a timely manner. Smile Factories was established to address this need.
Smile Factories is designed to funnel patients from the Biannual Event to your office with seamless continuity. A volunteer dental office in the St. Louis region agrees to complete the necessary treatment of a GKAS patient. After completion of treatment, the patient’s records and responsibility is forwarded back to the Smile Factories/Give Kids A Smile office for record keeping and follow-up.
