Conceptualized by Dr. Drew Markham, the goal of this project is to showcase, through a deserving candidate, the health and emotional benefits of looking as good as you feel, feeling as good as you look! After seeing first hand the dramatic change that a smile transformation can have on someone’s self esteem, Dr. Drew expanded upon his idea and reached out to other professionals in Huntsville for their support towards changing someone’s life.

Through the involvement of the Huntsville Makeover Team, a caring group of community-minded professionals, he set out to transform one local resident and thereby expose the idea that allowing one’s inner beauty to shine through is not a story about vanity, but one about the triumph of improving one’s health and outwardly expressing one’s spirit. An unexpected benefit of this project turned out to be the effect that this process also had on those observing the transformation. In turn, they too take action to improve their health and improve their lives!
