Review for Free to Smile Foundation Inc, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Free To Smile is organization providing dental care with an emphasis on cleft lip and palate repair in poor and underserved areas around the world. My son, a dentist, has been on multiple trips to Guatemala and Cambodia with this group. The experience has changed his life and he has helped impove the lives of hundreds of children on these trips. Go to the Free To Smile website to see some of the photographs from their trips; just seeing these photographs will impact your life too. Volunteers pay their own airfare and lodging costs. Free To Smile is a well run and efficient program funnelling almost all their funds into providing dental and surgical care to those children around the world in desperate need of their help. It is an honor to be associated with this altruistic and generous organization.

Review for Ohio Dental Association, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member and served in multiple positions over the past 35 years. The ODA works tirelessly promoting high quality, ethical dental care to all Ohioans and nationally as well. It provides services for both dentists and patients to help preserve the compassionate, honest, and trusting relationship between the dentist and their patients. Over the years they have stressed the need for dental care for the economically and geographically underserved. They have promoted tuition reimbursment programs to encourage recent graduates to locate in areas needing more dentists. They have launched and promoted the Dental Options program now having provided millions of dollars of dental care at no or reduced fees to those in need for over 10 years. The list of public education programs like Give Kids a Smile day, providing free dental care to children, and Operation Tactic educating the public on the risks of tobacca use are too numerous to list. The ODA advocates for safe, high quality dentistry for every Ohioan.
