The Blue Star Program is one of the ways that we get to bring incredible change into people’s lives. Each year, Drs. Roberts and our team of orthodontists accept nominations for children in our Asheville and nearby communities that are in need of orthodontic care but unable to afford treatment.
We receive letters from the children and their parents. These letters give us insight into their lives, including their hobbies, daily activities, and the obstacles that they are pushing to overcome.
One of our Blue Star recipients, Sam, told us all about his desire to have a new smile:
“I don’t feel confident about my smile and/ or when I smile. I can’t show my teeth and don’t feel that they look right. I have friends and like to laugh I would like to show them my beautiful smile if I had one.”
