How to Apply
Representatives are from the local chapters of the Grottoes of North America who are known as “Drs. of Smiles.” These representatives serve as liaisons and points of contact with the parents and dental offices to see that all paperwork is provided and properly completed and then then to file child’s application with the Humanitarian Foundation office for processing.
*All application forms must be completed and submitted to the local Dr. of Smiles. When no representative is available in your area or state, your case will be processed directly through the national office of the Humanitarian Foundation. Please call the office at (614) 933-0711 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
