About The Program

Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery’s Smile Again program offers a life-changing opportunity to the community of Amarillo, Texas. The Smile Again program is a chance for people who have deteriorating oral health to finally get the oral surgery they need but are currently unable to afford. The program is designed to help a deserving community member improve their smile, whether they suffer from missing teeth or their oral health is severely deteriorating. The recipient of the Smile Again program will have their smile restored by our oral surgeons through the placement of dental implants and a fixed denture. To apply for this program, please completely fill out the application form and tell us your story. If your oral health is compromised, you are missing most or all of your teeth, or you have suffered a traumatic accident that has left your mouth in unfavorable condition, then this program may be perfect for you. We are excited to pick a recipient from or near Amarillo, Texas, and help them with their second chance at life.

About Smile Again

The Smile Again program at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is designed to give one patient a completely new smile. We understand that the number of people in our community who suffer from serious oral health problems is more than we could even imagine, and we want to do something to start making a difference. We know that restoring oral function and giving someone a brand new smile can help restore their confidence and even give them the push they need to change their life or follow their dreams. Your smile has a large impact on your life, and we feel that everyone deserves to feel confident in their smile. The application period is open until July 24, 2016, at which point Drs. Graves, Wilkinson, and Atkins will review all submissions. They will meet with select candidates to evaluate their condition and listen to their stories before convening to select a recipient.

Why You Should Apply

The selected recipient of the Smile Again program will be evaluated before receiving a uniquely customized treatment plan to restore their oral health with a set of beautiful, natural-looking, and fully functional teeth. The decision regarding who will receive this life-changing treatment will depend on a variety of factors, and we encourage you to apply. If you suffer from poor oral health, lack a majority of your teeth, or cannot afford dental treatment without significant financial assistance, then the Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Smile Again program could be the perfect opportunity for you. Please take the time to fill out our application for a chance to Smile Again.

William Graves, DMD

As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, I have undergone extensive schooling and training that allow me to perform the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures. I am proud to announce the start of the Smile Again program here at our practice in Amarillo, Texas, because I know we have the opportunity to truly change someone’s life for the better. While I know how difficult it will be to choose just one recipient from a pool of deserving community members, I look forward to being able to help the recipient improve their oral health and feel confident in their ability to Smile Again.

Paul Wilkinson, DMD, MD

One of the many reasons I chose to pursue both a dental degree and a medical degree is because I knew I could make an even bigger impact in patients’ lives with double the training. I am always looking for new ways to help patients and give back to the wonderful Amarillo community that I am glad to serve, and the Smile Again program is the perfect way to do so. Choosing a recipient will be difficult because I know the need for oral surgery extends beyond just one deserving community member; however, I’m excited to help the selected recipient change their life and regain confidence in their smile.

Christopher Atkins, DMD, MD

I know I speak for the entire team at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery when I say I am proud to announce the start of our Smile Again program. I’m excited to be a part of this team that is committed to giving back to the community with this life-changing opportunity. I look forward to using my extensive oral and maxillofacial surgical training to help the chosen recipient improve their oral health and function. I can’t wait to see the final results and see the recipient’s brand new smile.
