Each year more than 5,000 children in the mountainous regions of Guatemala, Nepal, Vietnam and India have their lives enhanced through the work of the Smile Tree and Climb for a Cause. The services provided to these children have translated to as much as $1.2 million in eqjuivalent annual dental services through the work of over 100 dental professional volunteers. Since 1996 over 100,000 children have been helped through this work.
