IRVINE, Calif., May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Smile Brands Inc. and its Smiles for Everyone Foundation have

been honored with a Silver Stevie® Award in the category of Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year - At Organizations With More Than 2,500 Employees. Smile Brands Inc., a leading dental support organization with over 400 affiliated practices across 17 states, has a mission to deliver Smiles for Everyone® by creating win-win relationships with patients, affiliated providers, employees, suppliers and the communities they serve.

The Smiles for Everyone Foundation was started by Smile Brands Inc. Founder and CEO, Steven C. Bilt, who recognized that the best way for his team to make a lasting impact to the community is by leveraging the skills of Smile Brands employees and affiliated providers. Through the Foundation's programs, Smile Brands volunteers are given the opportunity to give back by providing pro bono dentistry to both their local communities, as well as internationally at the Foundation's International Outposts.

"The Foundation's programs create an opportunity for dentists and their support staff to give back to their local communities as well as underserved communities globally in a truly meaningful way. By donating their personal skills and time, they are able to have an exponential impact on the communities that we serve," says Executive Director Crystal Strait. "Smile Brands Inc.'s dentists and support staff really deliver service with their hearts. In addition to providing healthy smiles, our teams have a lasting impact on the communities we serve with their kindness and compassion."

In 2018 alone, Smile Brands Inc. affiliated team members helped the Smiles for Everyone Foundation deliver over $3 million in donated dentistry to over 4,500 patients. Since its inception, the Foundation has delivered smiles to over 21,000 individuals in need, donating over $16 million in dentistry.

The winners of the Stevie® Awards were determined by the average scores of more than 200 professionals worldwide in the two-month judging process. The awards will be presented at The 17th Annual American Business Awards banquet on Tuesday, June 11 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
