Want to travel the world and transform the lives of children with cleft lips and palates? We invite you to join us as we work to transform children's lives, one smile at a time.

Alliance for Smiles forever improves and transforms the lives of children and communities impacted by cleft lip and palate by providing free comprehensive treatment, while training and equipping local teams to sustainably provide quality, long-term care.

Alliance for Smiles is looking for volunteers to serve on medical missions in under-served areas of the world. We are recruiting plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, CRNAs, pediatricians, OR nurses, and PACU nurses.

This year, we've traveled to Guatemala, Ethiopia, Vietnam, and Ecuador, and we're planning additional missions in Ecuador, Bangladesh and beyond.
