At Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves the chance to show off a healthy, good looking smile — even those who might never be able to afford it on their own.
And so we partnered with the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation and founded the first Central Indiana Chapter to offer families in need with scholarships for free orthodontic care through our Carmel, Westfield, West Carmel/Zionsville, Lawrence/McCordsville, and Kokomo offices.
We know that a great looking smile has the power to dramatically enhance one’s quality of life. It gives hope, boosts overall health, and helps raise one’s self-confidence.
We want to change lives through the gift of a smile.
And so through our Smile for a Lifetime Central Indiana Chapter, our team of doctors and clinical assistants will gladly donate our time, skill, and resources to treat up to six deserving children, teens, and young adults across Central Indiana at no cost. And we can’t wait to see how those newfound smiles benefit our local communities.
Our Smile for a Lifetime Board of Directors meets three times each year (April, August, and December) to consider and select our Smile Scholarship recipients.
While we would love to assist everyone in financial need, our Board will only consider candidates who meet the following guidelines:
Each April, August, and December, our Board of Directors meets to review all applications and award up to six scholarships per term.
You or a friend can apply at any time, but completed applications must be submitted no later than the 15th of the preceding month (March 15, July 15, and November 15) to be considered for that scholarship cycle. Otherwise, it will fall into the next cycle.
Follow these steps to apply today:
1. Print and complete a Smile for a Lifetime Application.
2. Obtain 1-2 Letters of Recommendation by school/church/community leaders, coaches, etc., who personally know the applicant—not by a family member. These letters should be no more than one page and be typed or legibly handwritten in black ink (no pencil).
3. Capture and submit a clear, close up photo of the applicant’s full smile with teeth showing and a close up photo of the applicant’s teeth from the side while smiling.
4. Obtain copy of most recent report card.
5. Mail all aforementioned materials to:
Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics
16407 South Park Drive, Suite A
Westfield, IN 46074
6. Direct any questions to Heather Edwards at 317-867-1133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: Your application, letters of reference, and pictures will become the property of Smile for a Lifetime Foundation and will not be returned to you.

Thank you, G & B.
This experience was much better than the last time I had braces. Throughout this whole process, I have recommended your office and I will keep doing so!
My daughter has a Hollywood smile!
The staff is so compassionate and accommodating to working parents! Love this place!
Amazing doctors and team! We are always treated like family; I don’t know who else I would trust to do my children’s treatment.
[I started treatment for] confidence, less anxiety & a desire to better myself not just for my benefit but for my family as well. This office has changed my life! I’m finally feeling confident and complete.
The staff is wonderful. Appointments are always on time. It is such a convenient location and easy to get in and out of the office.
The staff and doctor are so personable, caring, talented, and friendly…we drive out of the way to come here!
The staff is wonderful, so helpful and kind. The up-to-date technology made me feel I was getting the best treatment.
We could go to a number of orthodontists. These days we live in Muncie. But for ten years and three members of our family, we have chosen Dr. Gorman. Always helpful. Always caring. Always here when we need them, including nights and weekends for emergency visits.
