About Operation Smile ( www.operationsmile.org )
Since 2007 due to the hard work and dedication of our dentists and staff, Dr. Forouzan Ghaffari has funded over 1,011 surgeries for children through Operation Smile. This was made possible through the loyalty of our patients and devotion of our staff. Our ultimate goal is to make healthy smiles and we are fortunate to be able to reach across the globe to ensure that this mission is accomplished. See the exciting video of us donating to Operation Smile.
Operation Smile, headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is an international children’s medical charity with a presence in more than 60 countries, whose network of more than 5,400 medical volunteers from over 80 countries is dedicated to helping improve the health and lives of children. Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 3.8 million healthcare evaluations and conducted over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities, as well as patients suffering from burns.
