Project Smile 2021

What is Project Smile?

“Hi. My name is Sneh Patel, I’m an oral surgeon with a private practice in the areas of Lorton, Springfield & Mt Vernon. We’ve been in practice for more than 10 years. Our local communities have been very good to us and we want to give back so what I came up with was Project Smile.

Basically, we’re going to try and deliver a hybrid implant case, basically dental implants to restore someone’s smile, at no cost to the patient. We’re going to do this for someone in need, someone who’s got a medical issue, who’s had immense domestic abuse, someone who is a military vet who is in need, someone where we can change someone’s life. We want to make an impact for someone and give back to the community.

I need your help to spread the word. Share this on social media, ask your friends to share it and get the word out!”

We have chosen our 2021 candidate for Project Smile, however, we are taking applications for the 2022 year.

Please give a brief story of why you or someone you know deserves this “new smile” and please include photographs of the current smile. We will choose the 2022 candidate mid year 2022.

While we would love to be able to offer this gift to many people all over the country, we do have to limit the applications to only locals of the Northern Virginia Area. We want to give back to someone who resides directly within our community. We will only be considering applications for those who live here in Northern Virginia, and verification will be required.
