Continuing our commitment to excellence in high-quality patient-centered care and service to the GSO Orthodontics (GSO) has proudly partnered with the Georgia Dental Foundation to provide complimentary orthodontic care to children of Purple Heart recipients through the Purple Heart Smiles program. The Purple Heart Smiles program serves and empowers children of veterans who were wounded, injured, or killed during their service by providing the opportunity to receive complimentary, high-quality orthodontic treatment. To date, GSO has provided over thirty children of Purple Heart recipients with the highest quality orthodontic treatment available and, ultimately, with a healthy and confident smile for the child. The program is ongoing as GSO pledges to keep serving our men and women who have served for our freedom.
To qualify for the Purple Heart Smiles program, a potential recipient must be a resident of Georgia, age 16 or younger, and the son/daughter of a Purple Heart recipient or have a Purple Heart recipient serving as their legal guardian. Documentation needed for verification includes a DD Form 214, Purple Heart Certificate and proof of being either the parent or legal guardian of the child. Qualified recipients are guaranteed a complimentary initial orthodontic evaluation with one of GSO’s orthodontists. Patients receive free braces and continued orthodontic care for the duration of their treatment. Any qualified dental insurance is applied to the cost of care.
GSO has two campuses in Atlanta and Duluth. To get braces today or simply learn more about the program please visit www.bracestoday.com/purple-heart-smiles.
