A healthy smile is just the beginning

Every contribution to Global Smile Foundation helps fund life-changing comprehensive cleft care for underserved patients.


A cleft is an opening in the lip and/or palate that occurs early in pregnancy where the developing facial structure does not fuse together completely.

How Cleft Affects Lives

Without treatment, children born with cleft are at greater risk of poor health, malnutrition, and poverty. Many children are bullied and their families are ostrascized by society.
