Orthodontic scholarships

Orthodontic scholarships

Dr. Black is aware of the need for assistance within our area and that is why he founded the Black Gives Back orthodontic scholarship program.

Our mission:

It is our mission to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, under-served individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community.


Candidates applying must meet the following qualifications: cannot currently be wearing braces, have good oral hygiene and no unfilled cavities, have a moderate/severe need for braces, must follow and be compliant with the treatment plan set forth by Dr. Black, reside in Buncombe County, be 7-21 years of age, and be willing to have your before and after orthodontic treatment photos on our website and social media accounts (Facebook + Instagram). Treatment will not include procedures that are needed from a specialist such as tooth extractions. The patient will be responsible for covering this if needed

*NOTE: You do not need to schedule a consultation to apply for the Black Gives Back scholarship. Application can be mailed or emailed to admin@kblacksmiles.com.
