Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Health, Philanthropy, Philanthropy, Charity & Voluntarism Promotion, Public Health, Youth Development Programs

Mission: To promote healthy smiles worldwide through community empowerment!

Results: The most effective measurement of our work can be described by a simple ratio- 1:1. We have served over 6,800 children in our target communities in Kurdistan Regional Iraq, Romania, and Haiti, that is over 6,800 children who now have a better opportunity to avoid awful, painful diseases like tooth decay or gum disease for the rest of their lives. Over 6,800 children who are less likely to miss school, or be unable to eat because of the pain from poor oral health. By the end of 2018, we plan to have up to 16,000 children served in the country of Haiti, as well as spread our services into other countries such as Nepal and Colombia. With this project, we could enable an entire generation of children to have the lowest reported cases of tooth decay in history. This, along with the financial benefits of providing work for previously unemployed women will enable Unspoken Smiles to not only improve the health of our target population but also improve their economy.

Target demographics: at-risks children and adults

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 4,040 children in our target communities in Kurdistan Regional Iraq, Romania, and Haiti.

Geographic areas served: underprivileged communities around the world

Programs: oral health education in classrooms, a fellowship program aiming at providing vocational training to young women, and lastly a global outreach programs in partnerships with like-minded organizations to provide treatment and help repair damaged teeth.

Unspoken Smiles Foundation is an organization that gives everything it has to the people it benefits. Jean Paul Laurent, it's founder, is as talented as he is thoughtful and well-spoken and it shows in USF. The mission of the organization is critically important and the solution Jean Paul has come up with is a perfect blend of bringing opportunities to the community and giving the children the tools they need to live a healthier life. I can't wait to see how USF grows into the dental health leader it is destined to be.

When families and individuals experience tough financial circumstances, preventive oral care, unfortunately, is often viewed as a luxury and it's worldwidely a known fact. This lapse frequently results in poor oral and other health outcomes, including pain and the need for more expensive care later on.
Historically in the U.S., dental health-care access has been limited by lack of dentists practicing in rural or inter-city areas. Patients also experience barriers due to limited education, economic resources, cultural beliefs, and health status disadvantages. Because of these barriers, some people suffer in pain or delay preventive care and treatment until the oral condition is severe and expensive to correct. When dental problems reach a crisis, some people seek dental care from hospital emergency rooms where health-care providers may temporarily alleviate pain but are not able to treat dental disease.
And that's where I got involved with the unspoken Smile foundation as I was serving as deputy mayor of a underserved U.S village when people are in such mentioned above needs working with JP and the staff of this local org was to most effective and impactful initiatives I have taken as mayor. Today my commitment with them is to help push legislation for more oral health care can be provided to underserved populations where they live, work, or play, resulting in improved oral health of the population at less or no cost nationwide. So far I have been with them for 5 years , it's a very dynamic crew and really oriented to make a difference in life of children and adults in underserved communities worldwide. Good job guys , may Gob bless you as He blesses the United states of America.
