The Smiles International Foundation operating in partnership with Rotary International under Dr. Moses’ leadership has recently updated the Costa Rica Smiles mission site at the Nacional Hospital de Ninos, HNN with both the advanced power bone and hand instrumentation as well as the education and software capability to perform complex craniomaxillofacial Surgical reconstructions with the assistance of the technology of Virtual Surgical Planning which digitally fabricates surgical guides after first manipulating the facial digital information of the bones and skull. This has taken, virtually, hours off the surgical time and has transformed their care to state-of-the-art accuracy for the child’s final facial outcomes. Dr. Moses personally leads, with his wife, at least 6-8 surgical missions annually. His current clinics are biennial in Cabo San Lucas and Tecate, Mexico completely covering services for the entire Baja California region as well as taking care of patients who travel over from the mainland of Sonora and Sinaloa by both car and ferry. He has biennial missions in San Jose, Costa Rica as well as individual missions in the Yucatan Peninsula (Mayan Smiles) located in Xipujil, Campeche. His mission site in the Ukraine at Dnepropetrovsk was given self-sufficiency status after nine years of biennial clinics and upgrading their instrumentation and techniques in 2013, and similarly his mission site in the region of the Bay of Bengal, in Mori Podu, India has reach self sufficiency status with team members who visit these sites sending surgical results for the Foundation’s data base for their children’s longitudinal care. The mission statement for the Smiles International Foundation is : “ Excellence in Education and Sustainable Charitable Surgical Care” and his results have proven that these goals are being met. After raising three children, and with over 30 years of academic teaching and clinical practice, Dr. Moses retired and sold his Pacific Surgical Institute Practice continuing his Philanthropic efforts forming Medical-Surgical Mission Teams worldwide with the mission to “Provide Excellence in Education and Charitable Surgical Care”. Dr. Moses lists his finest achievement in these past recent years as being able to share his project-mission life with his lovely, talented wife, Maribel, who leads the self-esteem programs and coordinates children’s patient care records.
