Creating Smiles, Improving Lives

Where We Work


We are incredibly fortunate to be working in a beautiful new hospital, Hospital General Dra.Isabel Carreon Garcia. Located in the Boca del Rio area of Veracruz, this modern, top-notch facility has just been open since January of this year.  Hospital staff have welcomed us with open arms and gone out of their way to accommodate us. They have allowed us to take over a large part of their space and have worked cooperatively with Austin Smiles team members to enhance the care of the patients.  For example, local nursing staff provides the overnight care for the children post-surgery and hospital doctors and nurses attend morning patient rounds with Austin Smiles doctors and nurses.
