Mission Save a Smile

Serving the Embera

Mission Save a Smile, founded in 2007 by Dr. Burseth and family, is a 501 (c) (3) public charity dedicated to extending the reach of dentistry to impoverished communities lacking access to care. Mission Save a Smile is in its 9th year of providing preventative and restorative care for several indigenous communities in Panama. The Kuna and Embera communities experience decay rates at pandemic proportions.

Serving the Kuna

The Mission Save a Smile team has been returning twice a year to several Indigenous communities in Panama to develop a sustainable program with a focus on preventative and restorative care.
