United States- Leading orthodontic manufacturer Ormco Corporation has partnered with Smile Train to offer innovative orthodontic products and care to children affected by clefts.
Within Mexico and India, 40 children will receive 100%- free cleft repair surgery and 200 children will receive full orthodontic treatment for free thanks to Ormco’s generous support. For a child born with a cleft, surgery is only the first step to treatment. Many times a full recovery requires several different types of services such as orthodontic treatment and speech therapy. By teaming up with Ormco, Smile Train is able to pilot new orthodontic treatment programmes in several countries around the world and make ancillary care available to more patients. Ormco is proud to work with Smile Train as one of its charity partners and help children achieve healthy, beautiful and confident smiles. In February, Smile Train will act as the charity partner for Ormco’s annual forum in Southern California to help raise funds and awareness about Smile Train’s work.
