Wu Orthodontics and Scholarships

Smile for a Lifetime Foundation, Midpeninsula Chapter:
transforming children’s smiles and inspire hope in youth and change their lives in a dramatic way.

After Dr. Wu received orthodontic treatment as a child, he realized just how different the confidence behind his transformed smile made him feel. That feeling has never left Dr. Wu and that’s why he has teamed up with the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation to donate his time and give that same gift to children aged 11-17, who are not able to afford treatment.

There’s nothing more beautiful than the sight of a child living their best life. Dr. Wu’s scholarships allow children to truly release their personality, shrug off their insecurities and inspire scholars to give back to their community.
