Smile It Forward | FAQ


Why do you choose to remain anonymous?

We choose to remain anonymous for the same reason all participating dental professionals are anonymous,  we also have dental practices and do not wish to use this site for promoting our business.

Can we meet you?

We are more than happy to meet with members of the dental community looking to get involved with Smile it Forward.

Why should we post with you instead of posting the event on our practice website?

There are 4 main reasons why you would post your event with Smile it Forward:

-You don’t have to worry about current patients finding out about the event and delaying treatment.
-With a password protected page, you have the ability to target specific groups or organizations that you want to help.
-You can avoid the appearance that you are having events to simply bring in new business.
-By removing your name from the event, you can open it up to more dental professionals to participate without the fear of them “helping the competition”

What if the password for my page gets out?

The reason for having a password protected page is so that you can limit access to a specific group of people that you want to help.  It is very important that those people understand this and since your event will have a limit on the number of people served, it would not be in their best interest to share the password.

What if we want to promote the event on our practice website or Facebook?

What we are trying to avoid is the appearance that Smile it Forward favors any specific practice, which is why any event listed on our site does not have your logos, website links, and contact information.

For the most part this is all enforced by the honor system.  Should we find out that you are using the Smile it Forward brand to promote your business prior to the event, you will not be allowed to post future events.

How much does it cost to post my event on Smile it Forward?
