One of the vital ways in which we are able to implement sustainable education and disease prevention is through our Unspoken Smiles Fellowship program. Through the fellowship, we are able to create new jobs for young women in developing countries.
These new jobs help in three big ways:
Allows more widespread oral health education, and puts more trained individuals able to perform oral hygiene assessments and cleanings within the communities
More individuals armed with knowledge means raising awareness for oral health within the communities
The young women are empowered and able to make a positive impact in the economic development of their community.
But beyond simply offering employment for the women in these communities, Unspoken Smiles is redefining dental enterprise in a sustainable way. Instead of merely sending clinicians to treat these populations for intermittent periods of time, the fellowship is creating a stable body of professionals to serve as the first line of care in these communities.
Upon completion of their training, the women are ready to join the workforce by either working for a local dental office or joining one of the mobile clinics that the Foundation is planning to create. With this program, which is still in its pilot phase, children below the age of 16 will be treated for free whereas a reasonable fee is charged for those over 17 years of age. This model not only supports the salaries of the fellows but covers the maintenance of equipment and other sundries.

UNSPOKEN SMILES Volunteers support the foundation’s mission of putting people's oral health first. Our Volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds who educate, advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNSPOKEN SMILES in their communities.
Our vast network of Volunteers has increased awareness on issues of oral health, women empowerment, education, decent work and economic growth and raised funds for UNSPOKEN SMILES every year.
Volunteers have hosted awareness events, such as panel discussions, speaking on the issues of oral health, Unspoken Smiles Fellowship, and women equality. Volunteers have held bake sales, dinner parties, Oral Cancer Walks, and hosted sporting events and online fundraisers, raising crucial funds for UNSPOKEN SMILES’s work to increase better access to oral care for all.
