Making Smiles, Keeping Smiles
Smiles on Wings was founded in 2003 by Dr. Usa Bunnag, a Thai dentist practicing in Bethesda, Maryland. When Dr. Bunnag returned to her native country of Thailand after many years, she saw that her fellow Thai people needed her help. Dr. Bunnag immediately put together a group of American volunteers and returned to Thailand armed with all the equipment, supplies and manpower needed to set up a mobile dental clinic.
Ten years and more than 20 missions later, Smiles on Wings is still running strong. Smiles on Wings not only provides dental care. The non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization has several on-going humanitarian projects established in rural communities in Thailand. These programs bring education, food, infrastructure and empowerment to villages and schools that need it most.
