The World Smiles Mission was started by a high school student in Carmel,IN who had a passion to create something bigger than herself. After representing her high school at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, Emily Deldar felt compelled to involve herself in something beyond her life back home. A mere two weeks after returning home, she established the World Smiles Mission. The board of directors of the World Smiles Mission consists of passionate high school students on a mission to change that statistic. Together, these girls know that they can achieve anything they set their minds to. They are an unstoppable force with a vision to revolutionize global oral health.Learn more
