It is our goal to alleviate the suffering of underserved patients born with facial congenital
deformities with special emphasis on cleft lips and palates. We believe all communities deserve the right to receive first rate care by highly qualified healthcare professionals regardless of socioeconomic, racial, or religious backgrounds.
Global Smile Foundation (GSF) was formed in 2008 as a Massachusetts not-for-profit corporation. The founding members are a group of dedicated volunteers and medical professionals who have been actively involved with global outreach programs for the last 28 years in countries in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian Subcontinent.
Collectively, GSF volunteers recognized the need for not just offering fragmented corrective surgical and dental procedures to patients born with cleft lip and palate deformities, but also the urgent need for implementing comprehensive care coupled with educational and preventive programs.
GSF is an approved 501(C)(3) not for profit organization according to the Internal Revenue Service.
