How to help
We have no paid staff. We are all volunteers. Dental professionals, as well as other individuals who are outgoing, strong team players, have a positive attitude, and speak Spanish fluently are always in need.  

Dental and pre-dental students are a highly valued part of our team. Students gain valuable hands-on experience working in a challenging and rewarding environment. Our dentists welcome your enthusiasm and energy.

We accomplish a great deal on a modest budget. Volunteers pay their own transportation and expenses. We’ve been fortunate to receive generous contributions of dental supplies, but they are not sufficient to meet the needs of Santa Catarina Mita's children, who have access to little or no dental care.  A contribution of:

$20 provides fluoride treatment and toothbrushes for two children for a year.

$40 pays for sealants for one to two children.

$50 provides fluoride, toothbrushes, sealants, and one filling for a child.

Your financial contribution goes a long way with Nuevas Sonrisas and is tax-deductible.  

Donations by check are much appreciated and make a big difference on such a small budget! Checks are payable to: Nuevas Sonrisas, P.O. Box 132, Lake Oswego, OR 97034. ¡¡Gracias!!
