Peru Mission Update – More Smiles Saved!

This past August in Peru, the Growing Smiles Foundation (organized by Dr. Bari Levine while a student at Temple University) provided nearly $160,000 in free, comprehensive dental services in conjunction with the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences. The group, which included all the Levine family of dental specialists (Dr. Robert A. Levine, Dr. Sheryl Radin, Dr. Ross Levine and Dr. Bari Levine), along with 17 Temple dental school students, helped 188 children and 32 adults. Over the past three years, the Growing Smiles Foundation has provided more than $450,000 in free, comprehensive dentistry.

The Growing Smiles Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is always grateful for your tax-deductible support. Contributions help the group purchase educational materials, dental hygiene products and instruments and offset travel costs for dental students.
