In a world where addiction can strip away more than just one’s health, The Smile Recovery Project stands as a beacon of hope and restoration. Founded with a mission to provide comprehensive dental care to recovering addicts who have endured the toll of substance abuse on their oral health, this initiative is not just about fixing teeth—it’s about rebuilding lives.

The goal at The Smile Recovery Project is simple yet profound: to offer opportunity, self-confidence, and freedom to those who have faced the physical, mental, and social ramifications of addiction. We understand that the journey to recovery is arduous, and we believe that confidence plays a pivotal role in this process.

The genesis of The Smile Recovery Project stems from personal experience. In 2022, after years of navigating his own path to recovery, founder Austin Barrett recognized the transformative power of confidence, and that confidence often starts with your smile. It was then that he embarked on the mission to make a tangible difference in the lives of those in recovery by helping them find their smile again.  

Through partnerships with general dentists, oral surgeons, and invaluable lab support from Dental Designs Inc, The Smile Recovery Project can fulfill its vision of connecting deserving individuals with the care they need.

The impact of our work extends far beyond dental restoration. By restoring smiles, we restore dignity, self-worth, and the ability to face the world with renewed confidence. We recognize that every smile holds a story, and we are honored to be part of the journey toward healing and wholeness.
