Give a Smile

Give a Smile Logo

Give a Smile is a public health initiative established by the Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO).The programme’s purpose is to enable ASO orthodontists to give a smile both figuratively and literally to people who are in great need of orthodontic care yet whose financial circumstances prevent them accessing treatment through the private health system.

Give a Smile orthodontists are ASO members who have volunteered to treat, for no fee, patients selected from public orthodontic waiting lists throughout Australia. While all work undertaken for these patients will be pro-bono, each patient will be treated with the same high levels of care and respect as all other full fee-paying patients attending the practice.

At the Carousel Orthodontic Centre we are proud to support the Give a Smile programme and were one of the first practices in Western Australia to participate in this goodwill concept.
