Global Impact Stories
"During the Covid-19 pandemic in NYC, I’ve had the opportunity to be a volunteer for this amazing organization. Being a part of this organization has shown me the positive impact we can provide to these children during these uncertain times & seeing how happy they are to learn. This has been such a rewarding experience to say the least. Forever grateful to be able to continue to pursue my passion for dentistry & inspired by Unspoken Smiles’ mission to promote healthy smiles to communities worldwide!”

They do work that has never been done before. As a volunteer, I feel that I am making a big impact in this organization.

Francisco. Age 6. Ecuador.
My name is Francisco and I am 6 years old. I am from Guayaquil, Ecuador. My favorite Unspoken Smiles virtual lesson plan was the Anatomy of the Mouth! Because of this program I change the way I brush my teeth. Something I learned that I did not know before are the many parts of the mouth. My favorite part of going to the dentist is finding out I have no cavities. My least favorite part is the sound of the drills. Bye!
