Smile Tree Clinic Commences In Kathmandu
Following a late evening arrival in Kathmandu on 10-18-16 to prepare for a month of trekking and climbing in the Khumbu Region, ADM president Daniel A. ‘Danny’ Bobrow’s first order of business was to visit the Sri Mangal Dvip (SMD) School in the Boudi District. The School is home to one of two Nepal-based Climb For A Cause / SmileTree sponsored oral health education and treatment projects.
In a little over two weeks, the Team of five dentists, two hygienists, and nine laypersons, all of them volunteers, will treat over 2,000 children.

To date, the Foundation has delivered dental care to over fifty thousand deserving children in seventy projects such as the one currently underway in Kathmandu. The equivalent dollar value of care delivered is in excess of $10 million.
None of this is possible without the generous support of individuals and businesses inside and outside of dentistry.
There are several ways to help “put BIG smiles on little faces.” These include:
- Climbing For A Cause – Join CFAC in one of its Annual Hiking Events. 2017 marks its 20 Anniversary. Hikes are one day in duration and, while physically challenging are not considered ‘technical’ ascents.
- Become a ‘Branch Office’ of the Smile Tree – For as little as $75 a
monthyou can help deliver desperately needed care and education to needy children domestically and abroad. Branch Offices receive complimentary promotional support to ensure their good works are not kept a secret, compliments of ADM Cause Related Marketing.
- Volunteer to serve on a CFAC / ST Oral Health Education and Treatment Project – dentists, hygienists and
alike are welcome to apply. Those who have participated report a nonclinician life transformingexperience
- Do all three – CFAC /ST Alumni have met
