#smileon is more than just a social media tagline or hashtag to us. It’s a way of life. We believe everyone deserves to feel like smiling no matter what life has planned.
We work in the community we serve, to give individuals the opportunities they may not otherwise have available. The entire staff is committed to making each and every patient feel like a special part of the family.
Stats 4 Smiles
Go Panthers! The staff of L.O. teamed up with some of our favorite Carolina Panthers to develop the Stats 4 Smiles™ community program. Each time one of our partner players scores or makes a big play during a game, we provide a child in need with orthodontic treatment for free. We work with Smiles Change Lives to find boys and girls who are in need of orthodontics, yet various circumstances keep them from receiving the care they deserve. It warms our hearts each time we see one of these youngsters smile for what may be the first time ever! Smiles Change Lives works with the dental community in our area to help us find kids who are in need.
Kawann Short (2014)
Our 1 st S4S Ambassador
Pro Bowl defensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers and Purdue alum like Doc Meggy. Amazing guy with an amazing smile (thanks a little to us and Invisalign (; ). 13 sack Pro Bowl season in the first full year of Stats 4 Smiles (quite a little over our estimated number, lol)!!!!!
Had a party at the end of the season where he showed up and surprised all the kiddos and their families that received free treatment due to his stellar play. ‘Twas quite a smile-filled occasion.
Kawann continues to #keeppounding and at the end of the 2017-2018 season, he had 30 (yes, THIRTY!!) kids smiling ear to ear, teeth just sparkling with our braces on them.
3 sacks this season to date
Frank Kaminsky (2016)
Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank!
All Star 3 point sniper PF for the Charlotte Hornets
Huge smile to match the 7ft frame (another star LO patient)
Loves the Stats 4 Smiles mission and has been known to FaceTime the kiddos he gets braces for on the day they have them put on. Quite a shocking and fun experience for our newly braced friend.
Through the 2017-2018 season, Frank had shot lights out and crashed the boards hard enough to get 9 kiddos free treatment!
Brad Keselowski (2016)
NASCAR All Star driver
Was super stoked to focus on the smiles of our Charlotte veterans
Won 3 races since joining the squad, including the Daytona 500!!!!!
4 smiling veterans are now straightening out their smile with Invisalign, a great way to say THANK YOU for their inspiring service
4 First Place Wins to date
Jon Rahm (2017)
PGA Rookie phenom straight from Espana
Immediately after joining the Stats 4 Smiles Squad he decided to take 1 st place at a tournament in Ireland.
A frequent regular at the LO Smile Shop, Jon is a big fan of orthodontics. Will often send a video of himself congratulating the Stats 4 Smiles recipient on their new braces!
For every TOP 3 finish, Rahmbo (as we like to call him) puts a kiddo in free treatment. In the very short time since we teamed up, he has already racked up 4. Insane.
TeamSmile has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in free dental care to the children of the Charlotte community with their annual events. The children receive dental treatments in a stadium, and it is more an event than a simple appointment.
Other kids attend to learn about oral health, and we even have a DJ, mascots, cheerleaders and favorite players. This experience not only gives the child the dental care needed, but also sets up the mindset that dental care is fun and exciting.
