About Us

Spread a Smile BC (SaS) is a not-for-profit organization that strives to reduce oral health inequalities in BC by providing dental health services and sustainable products to those who cannot afford dental care, while increasing oral health literacy for all. Our organization emerged when a local BC dentist partnered with a group of volunteers to provide dental services to individuals who do not have the financial means to access dental care.

Spread a Smile emerged in 2020 and has since expanded to address a range of goals including:

01

Increasing oral health literacy by educating the community on various dental diseases, the implications of poor dental hygiene, and dental practices and precautions

02

Providing sustainable dental products – such as biodegradable, pre-pasted toothbrushes – to low-income individuals to support oral health

03

Offering 21 free dental treatments to people in marginalized communities in 2021 (and more in the following years!) 

04

Future implementation of a mobile dental transport unit to host free, in-field dental treatments to vulnerable populations to expand the reach of our organization
