Humble AMBASSADORS & HELPERS
SPREADING THE WORD, EDUCATING, HUMBLY HELPING
HUMBLE SMILE AMBASSADORS
Our Humble Smile Ambassadors are some of dentistry’s global leaders. Through their professional and educational efforts they have achieved prominence amongst their peers and their opinions and contributions shape the dental profession. As Humble Smile Ambassadors, they leverage their world-wide recognition to advance the cause of environmentally and socially responsible tooth brushing.
HUMBLE SMILE PIONEERS
Humble Smile Pioneers are young professionals who bring a special fresh energy to our Humble projects. They range from dental students eager to get their hands wet in dentistry, to aspiring dental, political or humanitarian leaders. Humble Smile Foundation offers them a place to unleash their passion and exercise their creativity, while keeping the rest of the organization in tune with the next generation of professionals. They are the future faces of a more humanitarian dental profession.
Humble Helpers is an educational program spearheaded by the Humble Smile Foundation. Children in participating primary schools learn about oral health, nutrition, environment and giving back. Each school adopts a project in an underprivileged school by fundraising. A channel of communication is opened between the students of both schools, based on the values learned and practiced in the Humble Helpers program:
+ Responsibility for one’s health
+ Responsibility for your fellow man
+ Responsibility for our environment
HUMBLE SMILE FELLOWS
Humble Smile Fellows are our people in the field who have undergone the Humble Smile Training Program and are qualified to work with the school children to prevent oral disease.
HUMBLE SMILE CLINICS
This title is awarded to selected dental offices around the world who actively demonstrate a high level of care not only to their patients, but also to underprivileged people who don’t have access to dentistry, as well as to the environment. To qualify as a Humble Smile Clinic, the dental office must be promoting the following 3 P’s:
The dental team is driven by a preventive philosophy that recognizes that no restorative treatment is as good as the pre-diseased condition, and prescribes preventive interventions as the highest level of patient care.
Staff members are involved in oral health outreach projects for the benefit of people living in places where there is no dentistry available.
The dental office recommends biodegradeable toothbrushes as an alternative to the regular hard plastic manual ones.
