Medical Advisory Board

About the Medical Advisory Board


Many of the best and brightest cleft experts in world, from surgeons to anesthesiologists to orthodontists to speech therapists, comprise the Smile Train Global Medical Advisory Board. It works closely with regional Medical Advisory Councils – such as in Mexico, India, China, Brazil and Africa – to set the standards for safety and quality for every Smile Train partner and program.

Smile Train’s number one priority in providing cleft surgery and comprehensive cleft care is to ensure the safety of all patients receiving treatment. The organization’s Medical Advisory Board has developed a Safety and Quality Protocol that sets the required standards for safe surgery and anesthesia care at Smile Train medical partners around the world.
