Operation Smile was founded by Dr. William P. Magee, Jr., a plastic surgeon, and his wife Kathleen, a nurse, and a social worker in 1982. They were traveling to the Philippines with other medical volunteers to repair their cleft lips. What they saw was overwhelming, approximately 300 families arrived hoping their children would receive surgery, but the team could only treat 40 children. As they were leaving Dr. Magee promised to return and help more children.
Since 1982, Operation Smile and its volunteers have provided surgical procedures and dental care to more than 326,000 children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial differences.
