Dr. Michael Weathersby, of Aspire Orthodontics with offices in Cleveland and Ooltewah, recently launched a new initiative called ‘Smile It Forward’ which will provide a deserving student in the area with free orthodontic treatment.
“Orthodontic treatment is an important investment, not only from a health perspective but from a confidence and self-esteem perspective. I want to pay it forward with this initiative and give deserving kids, no matter their financial circumstances, the opportunity to enjoy the benefits that orthodontics can provide,” explains Dr. Weathersby.
‘Smile It Forward’ provides free orthodontic care to students who are actively involved in their schools and/or the community. Dr. Weathersby and his team are encouraging community members, teachers, parents, employers, mentors and friends to spread the word and encourage students to enter to win free braces by submitting the form at www.AspireOrtho.com. Program participants will be chosen based on their impact on the community, orthodontic need and the potential impact of orthodontic treatment on their life.
“One of my favorite things about being an orthodontist is watching the confidence grow from non-existent before braces to beaming after braces. I look forward to watching our Smile It Forward recipient go through the same powerful transformation,” says Dr. Weathersby.
