Smile Design Gallery is a social enterprise that provides free dental care to people in need by employing the sales of art to provide free dentistry for children and communities in need. With a wealth of celebrity support from the likes of Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Kris Humphries, Angela Simmons and more, Smile Design Gallery has grown exponentially over the last year. The hope is to turn the $250K of charitable dentistry done to date into millions to benefit uninsured families through Smile Design Gallery.

The event was held at Miami’s posh South Beach Delano Hotel and was curated by Martin Galindo of Smile Design Gallery and Alexander Clark and Laura O’Reilly of The City Firm. The crowd was entertained by Guest DJ sets from Fab 5 Freddy and Scram Jones with surprise performances from Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah and NYC native N.O.R.E.

“I am a believer that social enterprise will move the great masses of humanity forward. American children did not ask to be born in the poorest city in the country. These kids want laughter, compassion, and love. How do you monetize that? The social enterprise becomes the market for love. If we really want a world that works for everyone, with nothing, and no one left out. Then charitable giving has to be a serious part of our conversation.”
-Dr. Lee Gause, Founder, Smile Design Gallery
