Our Story

Open Wide Foundation

The opening of the model clinic in Peronia Guatemala began a journey of growth, discovery and connection for both the community and the dental professionals volunteering there. Several videos about the foundation, clinic construction and opening of the model clinic best tell the amazing effort behind going from a corn field to a working clinic in just 17 days.

On the Ground Updates

On the ground updates are short and topic specific videos we can share with our supporters and potential volunteers to give you an idea of the accomplishments under way.
