Safety & Quality

SmileTrain’s #1 priority is to ensure the safety of the patient.

All of SmileTrain’s treatment partnerships are required to follow SmileTrain’s Quality Improvement Protocol, which lays out the basic elements needed to ensure safe surgeries and to provide for the ongoing review and improvement of the quality of care.

Safety & Quality Protocol

Developed by world-renowned members of our Medical Advisory Board, the safety & quality protocol guide sets the minimum standards that are expected from our partners to ensure the safety of our patients and the quality of care they receive.
