Support Smiles Beyond the Bars & Help Change a Life


Smiles Beyond the Bars provides the gift of restored smiles to women and men who have experienced incarceration or domestic violence and are committed to rebuilding their lives to one of independence. Through a network of dental professionals and labs, Smiles has helped more than 210 formerly incarcerated recipients in Arizona whose teeth have suffered the effects of drugs, poverty and prison. With close to $1 million in dental procedures contributed annually since 2009, Smiles recipients have successfully transitioned into society resulting in a 0.1% recidivism rate and has saved nearly $7.5 million in Arizona tax payer’s dollars not going towards incarceration costs.
