CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF SMILES
Past, Present + Future
In 1999, Smile Train developed a model that has proven both sustainable and hugely effective by empowering medical professionals around the world with education, training, and resources to treat children with clefts in their own communities.
Experience the impact your support has made on patients and families around the world by exploring a highlight of accomplishments in our interactive timeline.
MEET OUR FOREVER SMILES
Before his cleft treatment, Osawa was shy and falling behind in class. Now, our one millionth patient is receiving high marks and can’t stop smiling.
This once quiet and reserved ten-year-old received his 100%-free cleft surgery in 2013 and has blossomed into a confident teenager.
For the past eight years, Sofia has received comprehensive cleft treatment, including orthodontic care. Today, Sofia is a very happy and active child.
Our first patient has since graduated from school, found love and started a family, and created her own business.
