Many communities around the world lack access to quality dental care. Poor oral health can lead to countless other problems, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and loss of sleep—which can keep children out of school.
Laura Zalnis, a volunteer with Mission Save a Smile, traveled with a group of volunteer dentists and dental students to provide oral health services for the Guna people.

LuminAID is proud to partner with Mission Save a Smile in the critical work they are doing!
