About the Company

Smiles Foundation

Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Canada and in the Dominican Republic which started its operations in 1987. Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of disadvantaged children in the Dominican Republic by offering free preventative health education and restorative dental treatments to children. Adults are treated at only half the average cost of the local dental fee. Our network of 10 permanent and 5 mobile dental clinics is eliminating barriers to dental services faced by low-income families throughout the Dominican Republic. Since 1987 over 5 million Dominicans have accessed our dentistry and educational services. We also offer a youth summer camp, language training and a computer literacy program at two of our clinics, and we continue to grow in new social enterprise programs. Our supporters make donations of dental equipment, materials and supplies to be used at our Dominican clinics, make our sustainable model of care possible. Donors also provide the funding to ship containers of equipment and supplies to the Dominican Republic.  Donations are essential to maintain our programs. In Canada, we support underserved communities with health programs aimed at enhancing health and emotional well-being: SMILES IN ACTION. SMILES IN ACTION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH is designed to offer Dance Sport classes to kids who are facing a variety of difficult situations in their lives. It focuses on kids from immigrant, low-income and aboriginal families as well as children with health challenges and disabilities.
