Changing Lives Through the Gift of a Smile
Date:8/25/2013

Erie, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

When Tehya's family heard about Smile for a Lifetime they were excited about the possibility of their daughter receiving free braces but when she was chosen by the board of directors to receive a scholarship they were overjoyed.

The Erie Chapter of Smile for a Lifetime (S4L) is celebrating their third year of helping children achieve the beautiful smiles they deserve. So far, they have served 15 children and by the end of 2013, they will have three more children in treatment including Tehya.

Smile for a Lifetime (S4L) is a national organization that serves some 1,200 children a year in various locations across North America. Dr. Iszkula joined S4L in 2010 to help underserved children in the Erie area. Tehya, Zak Mangold and Katie Swanson all received scholarships after this last round of screening.

Inside the home, however, she is a funny girl with a sparkling wit, who constantly makes us laugh with her antics and her huge smile. Even though we are in the early days of her treatment plan, we are already noticing signs of that lovely smile beginning to be shared with others outside the home. Thank you Smile for a Lifetime."

Sarah was the first scholar to have her braces removed to see her winning smile since the inception o
