The most recent research article evaluating the Brighter Smiles program has been published by The International Journal of Family Medicine. Canadian medical trainees cited their involvement in delivering the school-based program and ability to effect significant and positive change in both the participating children and the community as reasons why they were more willing at graduation to consider practice in rural areas or a global health context.
