Dr. Markarian appeared on St Louis Fox 2 News Morning show on Monday September 15th in the 8-9 am hour. Dr. Markarian talked about the charity, Smiles Change Lives, that he is helping to organize in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. Smiles Change Lives provides orthodontic treatments for patients with significant orthodontic needs and with major financial hardship. The idea is to help improve the individual’s self esteem, giving them the confidence to achieve more in life. Here is the link to the interview: Smiles Change Lives interview If you are interested in finding out more information about getting a child into treatment with Smiles Change Lives, either go to the website from the link above or call them at (888) 900-3554. Just as important, Smiles Change Lives needs donations to provide the treatment for the children. It costs about $500 per child to administer the program (all orthodontists are unpaid for their services), and if you would like to support this great cause contact Andrea at Smiles Change Lives.
