Corporate social responsibility
Our focus on philanthropy means we partner with and support organizations that closely align with our purpose – transforming smiles, changing lives.
Align Technology has contributed more than $1 million dollars to Operation Smile, a global non-profit that provides free surgeries to children and adults born with cleft lip and cleft palate. Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided hundreds of thousands of surgeries around the world. A surgery that also changed the life of our colleague Matt as he shares in his #myalignstory.
Align Technology is committed to America’s ToothFairy, an organization that provides oral health education resources to nonprofit dental clinics, public health organizations, educators and volunteers. To date, Align has given more than $1.7 million dollars to America’s ToothFairy, helping more than eight million children.Learn more
