Delivering "Smiles for Everyone" in Paraguay

Smile Brands Inc. renewed its commitment to provide “Smiles for Everyone®!” with a mission trip to Asunción, Paraguay in December. President and CEO Steve Bilt led team of executives and dentists on an 8-day visit of orphanages and nutrition centers, bringing critical oral care to residents who otherwise have no access to dental services. Nicknamed SEAL Team One (Service Expedition Accelerating Leaders), the group ultimately helped over 300 children, performing over one thousand extractions and restorations. The video below showcases some of the most stirring moments of the trip, for both the patients and the doctors themselves. Smile Brands Inc. and the Smiles for Everyone Foundation are planning two additional mission trips in 2012, to be announced in the coming months.
