Meet the Board.

Spirits for Smiles is a register 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Indiana. We were founded by David Hartley who is one of the owners of Indiana Liquor Group (ILG). ILG operates over 40 retail package liquor stores in Indiana. David knew that he could leverage the footprint and scale of ILG to raise awareness and funds to assist Hoosier families that cannot afford quality dental care. ILG will host multiple fundraising events throughout the year with signature WhiskeyFest events that are held in the fall & winter months. We appreciate your support in making a meaningful positive impact.

Frequently Asked Questions.

We have listed out common questions we are receiving. If you have a unique question that is not below, please contact us via the Contact form.


How does the process work?


It’s a 3 step process.

1) Your request for assistance will be received by the committee and if approved,

2) you’ll schedule an initial evaluation by a dentist who will send the committee a plan of care along with costs. The committee will decide how much, if anything, to approve for assistance.

3) Once approved, you’ll schedule your visit(s) to the dentist to have the work performed. Spirits for Smiles will send funds directly to your care provider.

What are your requirements to request assistance?


The only requirement is that the recipient live in a county that Indiana Liquor Group currently operates within. Currently those counties are Wabash, Huntington, Grant, Blackford, Howard, Madison, Delaware, Henry and Hamilton.

What services does the charity fund?


All manors of dental care including routine visits/cleanings, fillings, extractions, crowns, etc.

Is there an age requirement?


We support all individuals above the age of 3.

Is there a limit on funding assistance?


There is no limit. The Assistance Committee has the authority to provide any financial assistance that they deem necessary.

Can I use my local dentist?


We’d prefer that you use one of our community health center partners. We have a strategic partnership with these organizations and they provide outstanding care and very reasonable prices. However, if you cannot travel or simply prefer your local dentist, the Assistance Committee may authorize using the dentist of your choice.
