TOgether Project, LLC is the philanthropic arm of Total Orthodontics. 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. 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 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.

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, Dr. Theroux, Dr. Barefoot, and the staff at Total Orthodontics 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.
