What Others are saying about us

Dr. Kohli: Ashcamp, Kentucky Community Dental Event
We had an AWESOME experience in Jenkins and Ashcamp! Everything went very smoothly and we were able to work at our own pace and decide which procedures to do and in what order. We would like to send out a very special compliment to the Kentucky SmileFaith Team. We would like to truly thank everyone at SmileFaith Foundation for hosting our team and for making our dental mission trip and visit so great! The SmileFaith Guest House was very cozy and the meals were AMAZING! We didn’t need or want for anything the whole time we were there. We will be “booking” a SmileFaith Foundation dental event date for next year soon, and looking forward to it!

Senator Mitch McConnell, United States Senator
Please allow me to congratulate SmileFaith on all of their terrific community projects!

Sandra, Dental Patient
When my son saw my new smile, he actually cried tears of joy. He said “Momma, this the first time I’ve ever seen you smile!” Thank you SmileFaith!

Dr. Dan Bailey, Cumberland Kentucky Community Dental Event
I have been privileged to serve on over 30 dental mission trips in my lifetime. SmileFaith Foundation’s mission trips have by far been the best I’ve ever experienced.

Todd Depriest, Mayor of Jenkins, Kentucky
SmileFaith has been instrumental in bringing help and hope to our citizens in this corner of our great state. I look forward to a continued partnership with my friends at SmileFaith Foundation.

Dr. Douglas Cotton, Lynch Kentucky Community Dental Event
I have done dental mission trips to Lynch, Kentucky for at least ten years. Through SmileFaith, we were able to meet the needs of a large number of people. Additionally, I had three dental students with me (all “D4”). They were able to get a lot of experience in basic dentistry and also experienced the reward of servicing others less fortunate!
