The Pi Foundation Puts Sparkling Smiles on Many Faces
Many people underestimate the value of a sparkling smile, unless they have suffered from a calamitous dental condition. Congenital disease, poor hygiene, traumatic injury and improper nutrition are only some of the sources that destroy this strong human asset, but when one is confronted with the pain of dental disease, it is not only function and esthetics that disappear. Often self-confidence is completely lost, and embarrassment becomes the operating emotion. Those who recover from this nadir of ugliness, who finally possess the ability to flash a winning smile, experience an unparalleled metamorphosis. They embrace a remarkable sense of new freedom and self worth that frequently produces amazing results.
The Pi Foundation has a very clear mission. Cutting edge dentists, laboratory technicians, and professional staff band together to come to the rescue of patients with dire dental situations and limited financial resources. With the support of implant manufacturers who provide hardware, the Pi team works diligently to treatment plan an exquisite new healthy smile for each candidate. Usually within three or four visits, a hopeful patient finds themselves completely overwhelmed by the results. Their smiles are connected to an indescribable inner joy. Even their eyes begin to smile!
For thirteen years, the Pi Foundation has selected candidates from a national pool of applicants to receive the gift of a healthy smile. From Seattle, Washington to Rutland, Vermont and from San Diego to backwoods South Carolina, the magic of the Pi Foundation has touched lives; however, hometown needs from suburban Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley always attract special consideration. A registered Pennsylvania 501 (c) (3) charity, the Pi Foundation actively seeks friends and financial support to broaden it’s annual capabilities.
There are astoundingly many in need of a smile that functions and many who have very little hope of reaching that dream. A smile holds a premiere position in our complicated world. It influences physical and psychological wellness, public image, position, preservation of youth, personal accomplishment, energy, warmth, acceptance, respect and the ability to take a bite out of just about anything. The Pi Foundation is dedicated to rebuilding lives, one smile at a time.
