“For World Wide Smiles” (World Wide Smiles) is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, EIN # 27-0601827. Co-founded in 2008 by Dr. Sherwin Shinn, DDS and Faria Shinn.
For World Wide Smiles (World Wide Smiles Inc.) was established to alleviate suffering from dental disease and facilitate disease prevention, education and practice. This was is in response to my personal experience in Nepal in 1990 where I witnessed that children were dying every day from infections due to abscessed teeth. Local people had no idea what caused this condition, how to prevent it and how to treat it. Even the hospitals didn’t have access to the necessary basic treatment equipment and instruments, nor the expertise to treat emergencies and prevent ongoing problems.
