What is the Smiles for Hope Foundation?
We are a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Foundation committed to the idea that we should all have the chance to serve our fellow human beings if given the opportunity. We provide that opportunity.

What do we do?
We provide on-going dental outreach expeditions for dentists, their teams and their families. We often coordinate our expeditions with recognized dental organizations and humanitarian groups who wish to provide their membership with this life-changing experience. In short, we lead the way in providing hope to the poorest communities around the world.

Why do we do this?
To provide an avenue for us as a dental profession to serve the “poorest of the poor” through dental services, both preventive and rehabilitative. It is also our goal to provide a moving, powerful experience in our own lives as well as the lives of those we serve.


Where do we serve?
Our expeditions of 15-20 participants including dentists, hygienists, teams and family members serve in many different countries around the world. Expeditions could be scheduled in Mexico, Guatemala, Boliva, Vietnam, Nepal, Kenya, and the Domincan Republic. Each expedition will last approximately 8 days.

When do I sign up?
Our dental outreach expeditions are calendared one year ahead. As you consider your annual calendar, call us to find out when expeditions are scheduled and tell us who might want to be involved in this life changing opportunity. The Smiles for Hope Foundation will provide all clinical supplies and portable dental equipment. We make it easy for you to provide this chance to “give back” to your profession.
