Smiles Beyond the Bars is a nondenominational Arizona nonprofit whose mission is to change the lives of formerly incarcerated people by changing their smiles.
Through a network of dental professionals and labs, Smiles Beyond The Bars has helped more than 200 deserving, formerly incarcerated recipients in Arizona and California whose teeth have suffered the effects of drugs, poverty and prison. With close to $5 million in dental procedures done to date, our recipients have successfully transitioned into society. Our recipients have less than a 1% recidivism rate and have saved nearly $7.5 million in tax payer’s dollars not going towards incarceration costs.
We embrace men and women who have begun the process of changing their lives.
In partnership with the finest professionals of the dental community, we extend comprehensive dental service to our candidates. We give our people not just a new smile, but a chance to help themselves.
We collaborate with other like-minded organizations providing services enabling people to change their lives.
