Week 1 Video
We are extremely excited to announce our very unique fundraising event, “Creating Smiles One Mile at a Time.” This year, Smile for a Lifetime’s Board President, Dr. Don Montano and colleague Dr. Rob Relle, will be launching a historic cycling trip across the US to raise funds and awareness for Smile For a Lifetime. Both residents of southern California, Dr. Montano and Dr. Relle will kick off their fundraising ride at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California on September 12, 2020. Their goal is to average 100 miles a day for approximately 5 weeks, riding along historic US Route 66 to the finish line in Virginia Beach, VA. They will be accompanied by two additional cyclists, Brian Dooley and Abel Rivera, and a support vehicle.

For orthodontist Dr. Don Montano, and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Robert Relle, creating smiles is more than a career, it is their passion. They know first-hand that crooked teeth are the number one target for bullies and can scar a child for life. They also know there are thousands of families who cannot afford orthodontic treatment and an equal number of dental and medical professionals who want to help.
