Love

We believe in the intrinsic value of each human life and in our call to love one another deeply. Every single person is worthy of love, care, dignity, and respect. When our starting point is love, our work is always fueled by compassion and seasoned with grace.

Serve

As our greatest aim is to use what we’ve been given to serve others, we provide respectful and dignified treatment to all those entrusted to our care. We serve humbly, with open hands and open hearts, learning from and being inspired by the amazing people we serve.

Restore

We provide dental care to restore confidence, self-esteem, and hope to those in underserved communities. A restored smile renews a sense of dignity and confidence, aids in gaining employment, ignites passion to pursue dreams, and sparks hope for the future.

Devotion

We are unashamedly about Christ and His Kingdom, both in proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel.

Empowerment

We are acutely focused on empowering and mobilizing indigenous leaders as skilled professionals who can begin to lead the paradigm shift of dental care and oral health within their own countries.

Education

We are relentlessly dedicated to adding value and expertise through unparalleled continuing education and professional mentorship producing exceptional and caring world-class practitioners.

Sustainability

This is not an aid project but an indigenous driven and community-centric approach that brings sustainable, empowering futures for dental care around the world.

Excellence

Excellence is the standard in every aspect of our work including but not limited to quality of care, patient experience, operational capacities, and clinic environments.

Community

This work is firmly and fundamentally founded in relationship, and therefore we are committed to relationship over transaction, quality over quantity, and respect for our fellow practitioners and patients. We were created to be in community, created with an identity that comes from belonging to something much greater than ourselves.

10

Discipleship

We firmly believe that the transformation of practitioners, patients, families, and community cannot happen without focused and intentional mentorship and discipleship. We are called to give our lives away to each other, investing in each other, and pushing each other to the greatness that lies within us.
