The Build Your Smile Dental Foundation is based on the principle that dental care is a basic human right and that it should not be a luxury afforded to only a select few. This mission has seen our team form partnerships around the globe -  locally in Toronto, to Costa Rica, Uganda, and Mexico. 

What began as providing basic dental care - hygiene and extractions - to underserved and impoverished communities quickly evolved to include innovating creative solutions for the delivery of more complex procedures. These procedures include implant placement and 'Dentures-in-a-Day'.

Our services are not limited to treatment alone. A core objective of our mission is to ultimately make ourselves and our services obsolete in our outreach communities. By providing dental education and clinical training to dental professionals in those remote areas so that they can continue to provide ongoing dental care to their communities in our absence and ultimately allow us to move forward and partner with new communities.

We bring quality dental care to everyone who needs it. Our only limitation is the number of organizational partners who join our mission, and the number of dental and oral care providers who want to give back.

Our work would not be possible without the kindness and dedication of our volunteers and the caring generous donors. If you are interested in joining our team or learning more, please contact us.
