Saving Smiles for Healthier Lives
Updated: 6/2/2011 11:05:53 AM commits to a $10,000 donation to benefit Operation Smile and help heal the smiles of more than 40 children around the world with cleft palates and cleft lips.
One out of every 600 children born worldwide is born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. These cleft conditions can disrupt a child’s health and wellbeing by making it difficult to eat, speak and socialize. In addition, some children born with a cleft condition may even die before their first birthday.
Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity, provides free reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lips and cleft palates by mobilizing more than 5,000 volunteer medical professionals from 76 countries. With as little as $240, Operation Smile can perform reconstructive surgery and transform a child’s life. has teamed up with Operation Smile to help heal the smiles of 40+ children worldwide. Donation campaigns start in June and coincide with National Smile Month, an internationally recognized event promoting oral health.
A portion of the proceeds from every discount dental plan sold by in June will go toward the $10,000 donation to Operation Smile. In addition, members, website visitors, Facebook fans and Twitter followers will be encouraged to donate directly to Operation Smile by visiting the Operation Smile donation page.
