TOgether Project administers our two primary community outreach programs — TO Smiles and TO Gives.  A unique and defining aspect of TOgether Project is that it was created by and is administered by a Board of Directors, comprised entirely of high school students, representing 9 different high schools.  We have been serving the Denver area since early 2019.

Our TOgether Project Mission

TOgether Project (TOP) values the energy and ideas of young people.  We believe that if you cultivate kindness, it will grow. Our TOP youth leaders create opportunities for personal growth through community service projects with TO Gives, and connect children in need to free orthodontic treatment through TO Smiles.

 

TO Smiles

TO Smiles provides free orthodontic treatment and free pediatric dental care to children that would otherwise be unable to afford it.  We give the gift of confidence that comes with a beautiful smile and we foster recipients in developing their own path of personal growth by requiring TO Smiles recipients to design and complete a 40-hour community service project, creating a ripple effect of goodwill.

TO Smiles Mission

TO Smiles believes that the gift of a smile can inspire hope, instill confidence, and cultivate goodwill.  Every year through TO Smiles, we give ten children in need completely free orthodontic care. The children also receive free general dental care from TO Smiles Board of Advisor Dentists.

In return, during their free treatment, the smile recipients are required to complete a ‘Pay it Forward’ project of their own design that directly benefits other children. This cherished part of the TO Smiles program creates an exciting ripple effect of goodwill for young people in our community and fosters future service to others.

Do you know someone who should apply? Is someone in your circle of friends involved with an organization serving this same population of families who should know about TO Smiles?  Help us spread the word!

TO Gives

TO Gives provides community-based group volunteer opportunities for patients of Total Orthodontics on a quarterly basis.  Through our group efforts, we support, empower, and beautify the communities we live in. Click Here to go to the TO Gives Page

TO Gives Mission

The goal of TO Gives is to inspire youth to do good and serve others. We believe empathy, compassion, and gratitude are muscles we build through meaningful community service, and that the lifelong habit of giving back begins when we are young. The youth leaders of TO Gives commit to making connections and organizing opportunities for you to show up and contribute your time and talents. Join us!
