Who We Are

From 2011 through 2019, Dr Rob provided orthodontic scholarships under the national non-profit umbrella of Smile for a Lifetime Foundation. The organization distinguished itself by being a non-profit, charitable organization to help provide orthodontic treatment for underserved individuals. In 2019, Dr Rob established his own non-profit to continue the mission of providing orthodontic scholarships in our community. Since 2011, Dr Rob has gifted more than 95 children in our community with orthodontic scholarships valued at more than $600,000, at absolutely no cost to the patient or family. Dr. Rob's Sharing Smiles non-profit works with community leaders as its advisory board to award scholarships. Our advisory board specifically seeks individuals who are in special situations, are struggling financially and who would not otherwise be able to afford orthodontic treatment that could dramatically change their lives.

Our Mission

We strive to create self-confidence, inspire hope and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving underserved individual who can use this gift to "help pay it forward" and better themselves and give back to our community.

What We Do

An application can be downloaded from our website. Completed applications should be returned to our office. Twelve students are chosen every year: six each in two application drives that end March 30 and September 30. Our advisory board is responsible for reviewing each complete application and choosing award recipients. 

The scholarship recipients receive a lifetime gift of their best smile, and are encouraged to pay this gift forward, using their talents and time to help those around them, and the community we live in. The application process is competitive.
