Giving back to the community on a global and local level is what our practice is all about. Twenty-five years ago, the Neponset Valley OMS doctors committed to taking their surgical skills overseas to treat children with facial deformities, such as cleft lip and cleft palate. We are pleased to share that our tradition of helping patients world-wide still exists today!

Our surgeons devote four weeks each year to traveling abroad as a volunteer surgeon, along with a team of nurses, surgical residents and medical/dental students. We collaborate with organizations such as Health Volunteers Overseas, Healing the Children, SmileTrain and various other independent programs. We visit countries all over the world, including:

  • Colombia
  • Nicaragua
  • Ecuador
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Mexico
  • Peru
  • Bolivia
  • Cambodia
  • India
  • Philippines
  • Bangladesh
  • Nepal
  • Pakistan
  • Afghanistan
  • Samoa
  • Saudi Arabia

Our mission trips are self-funded and all the care we provide is at no cost to the families.

If you share our passion for volunteerism, let us know! We love connecting with other volunteers and hearing their inspirational stories about helping others. If you are interested in learning more about the organizations we collaborate with, visit their website at:
