The mission of Smiles Beyond the Bars (Smiles) is to embrace the formerly incarcerated men and women who have begun the process of changing their lives. Smiles does so by working closely with the finest team of dentist professionals to give these deserving recipients the gift of a new smile.
Through a network of dental professionals and labs, Smiles has helped more than 210 formerly incarcerated recipients in Arizona whose teeth have suffered the effects of drugs, poverty and prison. With close to $1 million in dental procedures contributed annually since 2009, Smiles recipients have successfully transitioned into society resulting in a 0.1% recidivism rate and has saved nearly $7.5 million in Arizona tax payer’s dollars not going towards incarceration costs.
