Help Dental Hygiene Students Make Bolivia Smile!

Founder & Dental Hygienist Back at Bolivian School

Smiles Forever Founder, Sandy Kemper, who was motivated over 10 years ago to do something for the indigenous homeless Bolivian women, is excited to be once again back at the dental hygienist school.  She's sharing her enthusiasm with each and every student, and naturally also sharing her expertise from being years in the dental hygiene field herself.

What makes this a special time for Sandy is that she is reunited with her family, including her incredibly cute adopted three-year-old son.  This brave little fellow has nearly finished a series of surgeries to correct cleft palate.  One of the outreach programs of this Bolivian project is to educate women about vitamin deficiencies that may cause birth defects.  A goal of the project has always been to use education to improve healthcare and family stability in the extended community of Cochibamba, Bolivia.
