Smile Scholarship

Area seniors have the chance to receive a $1,000 scholarship!

About The Scholarship

Thames Orthodontics is offering a Smile Scholarship to any graduating senior in the Auburn/Opelika community. We are constantly thankful for the support of our community and want to return your trust and support by supporting the continuance of education among our high school seniors!

You do not have to be a current or former patient to apply. This is open to any graduating senior willing to let us know what makes you smile (details below). Simply write an essay entitled “What Makes Me Smile.” Creativity will certainly shine! We look forward to hearing more about you!

Essay Instructions

In 400-500 words, tell us about a time in your life that truly made you smile. We’re not just talking about a little smile, but a big one! Huge! You know the kind of smile that’s so big it makes your cheeks hurt? That’s the story we want to hear! It could have been a celebration, a heart-warming moment, an act of kindness, or just a funny happenstance. If your story makes us smile just a little bit more than everyone else’s, then you’ll receive the Smile Scholarship! We can’t wait to hear your story!
