Promising Smiles

We are looking to make a major impact on the women selected to improve their smile, oral health, and boost their self esteem. We want to remove any major oral health barrier to achieve financial self sufficiency and better their lives. Uninsured single women with children that demonstrate financial need and have career goals will be given priority consideration.

To become a Promising Smiles candidate you will need to be referred by a Shasta Community Health Center clinician/dentist who supports your application. Selected women must be clean and sober. They must have a good track record of complying with treatment and keeping appointments. They are also the primary financial supporter for their families (including children, spouse, siblings and/or parents).
