We are passionate about giving back to our community any way we can. Currently, Appel Orthodontics partners with the local community in two ways.

Smiles Change Lives

Smiles Change Lives¬†is a national organization that¬†matches children from low-income families with an orthodontist who can provide the care they need. Appel Orthodontics has been a provider with SCL since 2009, helping over 20 children to a more confident future through orthodontic treatment. We were SCL’s Provider of the Week in June 2015.

Local Charity Contributions

A portion of each patient’s fees goes to a local charity of their choice. Currently, four Philadelphia charities are supported through this effort. Each new patient is able to choose a charity as part of their initial exam process.

We hope to expand into more community involvement soon!
