Who We Are

Compelled by Compassion

We are a team of doctors and volunteers
compelled by compassion to serve the impoverished and underserved children suffering from cleft lip/palate deformities around the world.

Driven by Hope

When you’ve seen the power of one surgery to forever change a life, you cannot remain unmoved. We want to bring this hope to as many children and adolescents as possible.

Delivering Smiles

The Free to Smile Foundation delivers comprehensive, high-quality surgical and dental services to impoverished and underserved children and adolescents. Our volunteers and partner organizations provide free surgical, dental, and educational care to those we serve across the globe.

No Cost to Patients

Children and adolescents receive transformative oral health solutions at no charge. Doctors and volunteers donate their time and expertise while also paying their own airfare to serve on our mission teams. All donations support the overall Free to Smile mission of providing no cost dental care and cleft lip/palate surgeries.

Supported by Donations

Free to Smile Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) humanitarian organization relying entirely upon individual donors and donations to deliver transformative smiles around the world.
