SMILES FOR EL SALVADOR 2018

We anticipate helping approximately 800 young men and women prepare to serve LDS missions by providing assistance in filling out missionary papers, haircuts, missionary photos, blood and urine tests, missionary medical exams, vision exams, dental hygiene, hygiene training, comprehensive restorative dentistry, endodontics, and oral surgery.

We will also be participating in various community service projects, including projects for orphanages, a children’s cancer hospital, a maternity hospital, a service project for the families in a local LDS ward, and several visits to families in need.

Our Volunteer Team

Our team will be made up of approximately 125 volunteers. The estimated numbers of medical and dental professionals and volunteers needed are:

Dental and medical professionals are encouraged (but not required) to bring a trained assistant and/or family members to assist in the clinic. This will enable us to be as efficient as possible in this large endeavor.

Although Spanish language skills are a nice benefit, volunteers do not need to be able to speak Spanish to join an expedition.

Excursion: Roatán

At the conclusion of the five-day clinic, we will spend three days at the Infinity Bay Resort on the beautiful island of Roatán, where participants can relax on the beach or snorkel, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, zipline, and more.

  • Costs for the Expedition

    The total cost for this expedition is $2,860.00, and includes: airfare, ground transportation, meals, hotels, and a three-day excursion.
