Visit Smile Train partners and patients in the field.

Journey of Smiles


The Journey of Smiles program provides Smile Train supporters the opportunity to visit our local partner hospitals and patients in the field. There is nothing more impactful than seeing firsthand how Smile Train gives children a second chance at life.

Participants on these journeys meet with partner surgeons, current and former patients, and their families, as well as Smile Train staff in the field. Journey of Smiles trips provide a unique perspective of Smile Train's work, providing care to children with clefts throughout the developing world.

Join us and see how Smile Train continues to change the world, one smile at a time.
