Smile For A Lifetime

Dr. Robert Sheffield is now giving residents of East Contra Costa County another reason to smile by starting a local chapter of the Smile for a Lifetime foundation.

The mission of Smile for a Lifetime is to provide braces at no cost to disadvantaged children between the ages of ten and eighteen who reside in the above mentioned county. The children we strive to serve are those who would not otherwise have an opportunity for orthodontic care.

Dr. “Rob” Sheffield will award six orthodontic scholarships in 2011 and twelve scholarships annually beginning in 2012. The recipients will be selected by a local board consisting of diverse community leaders. This board will meet semi-annually to review applications and award scholarships.

Dr. Sheffield, whose office is at 3428 Hillcrest Avenue, Suite 100 in Antioch, is pleased to have the opportunity to serve our community by becoming a member of this generous foundation, and at the same time to realize his dream of serving local children who are in need of orthodontic assistance.
