Through the power of oral health, Unspoken Smiles promotes long-term health and economic security in the world’s most disadvantaged regions.
Unspoken Smiles Foundation
Oral diseases are an obstacle to development. Something as preventable as tooth decay can impair people’s ability to eat, to interact with others, attend school. The Foundation provides early oral health treatment and education for children, and dental assistance fellowships to young local women with otherwise inadequate earning opportunities, empowering them with a sustainable career in Dentistry.
Building Confidence, Communities, and Careers.
" It's on all of us to have a shared sense of moral duty to make access to primary oral care a priority."
Jean Paul Laurent, Founder & CEO, Unspoken Smiles Foundation
Welcome to the Unspoken Smiles Foundation where lives are changed, and saved, through the implementation of sustainable dental education and disease prevention programs.
Through the hard work and meticulous planning of our leadership, we have been able to effectively grow a simple idea into a global movement. The Unspoken Smiles Foundation seeks to address two of the most critical problems facing impoverished communities around the world: poor oral health, particularly in children, and lack of educational and economic opportunities for women.
