The Doctor of Smiles Program for Special Needs Children with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Down Syndrome and other neuromuscular conditions provides funding for dental care at the dentist of your choice for children 18 and younger.

This is sponsored by the Grottoes of North America.

Dental work must be approved BEFORE treatment will be funded (except for the initial exam, prophy, fluoride and x-rays which are paid for if the child qualifies for the program.) You can access more information including application forms at Our local contact is Lloyd Fries, who can be reached at 503.357.6419.
