About the Foundation
Unfortunately, cancer has become so prevalent that it affects nearly the entire population in one way or another. Increasing volumes of research support the notion that there is a connection between oral health and full-body health. While there are thousands of organizations focused on cancer research and improving the lives of cancer patients, Allana Smiles is a non-profit organization formed to connect the Dental and Oncological Communities for the benefit of cancer patients and their loved ones.
The Foundation is named in memory of a young girl with an amazing personality who had strength and drive but unfortunately died as a result of cancer at a young age. The Foundation's goals and determination are fueled by her memory. We hope the Foundation encourages and inspires others just as Allana did.
