Changing the world, one smile at a time.
Welcome to Nuevas Sonrisas
We are a small group of volunteers from the Pacific Northwest who travel each year to Santa Catarina Mita, a small town in Guatemala, to provide dental care to school-age children. These beautiful children face a lifetime of dental pain because they lack the most basic care. In addition to providing preventative care, we teach dental hygiene and healthy eating habits. We train Guatemalan schoolteachers and health workers to continue what we do throughout the year.
