Hirsche Smiles Foundation

Hirsche Smiles Foundation (HSF) is a nonprofit organization that takes plastic surgery, dental and home construction teams to underprivileged areas in Guatemala. 

We work with in-country sponsors to provide plastic and reconstructive surgery for needy children and dental care and dental health education to families who do not have access to these services.  Hirsche Homes builds homes for families living in poverty, in shacks without doors, windows, or indoor plumbing.

We visit Guatemala with teams of medical professionals and other volunteers. The effort to help is three-fold: Surgical Intervention, Dental Services, and Home Construction. We provide service without charge to families who cannot afford to get the help they need.

The Surgical team consists of volunteer surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other health professionals who perform and assist in surgery on needy children with birth defects such as cleft lip and palate deformities, extra fingers or toes, and disfiguring scars due to burns or other accidents.

Dental Services team consists of dentists, dental assistants, and volunteers who visit families in remote mountain villages throughout Guatemala. Our team is able to perform restorations and sealants to preserve teeth as well as extractions on teeth that are too damaged to save. HSF teams also instruct families on proper dental hygiene.
