Empower Local Doctors.
Transform Children's Lives.

We use the "teach a man to fish" model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repair surgery and provide comprehensive care in their own communities.

You + Smile Train Partners = Smiles

DONATIONS GO WHERE THE NEED IS

Donations help provide funding for local hospitals in the developing world to provide year-round 100%-free cleft repair surgery for children in need. The hospitals contribute to each surgery as part of our cost-sharing model.

CUTTING-EDGE SURGICAL TECHNIQUES BY LOCAL DOCTORS

Local doctors are empowered to help their own communities with Smile Train’s training on the latest cleft techniques.

ENSURING SAFETY & QUALITY

Patient safety is the guiding force behind every Smile Train program and initiative, and our doctors and associated medical professionals abide by our strict standards to ensure patients receive the highest level of care possible.

COMPREHENSIVE CLEFT CARE

In addition to cleft repair surgery, our local medical professionals evaluate whether or not additional nutritional, speech, orthodontic, and therapeutic care is needed. Our speech therapy programs ensure each child gains confidence with their smile.
