  • Dr. Emily Letran

    There are over 1.2 million non-profits in the United States right now, with new foundations being developed every day. However, the Emily Letran Foundation is a new non-profit that I suggest you research it’s mission and support. Dr. Letran is the perfect example on “giving back” to the community and helping others. Thank you for caring Emily

  • Emily is indeed the perfect example of “giving back” — though she is also SO much more. She is one of those supremely dedicated and virtually indefatigable individuals that are so truly shining examples for all to see. All of her amazing success against all odds, her growing mountain of personal and professional achievements, her selfless drive to help others — and so much more — make Emily Letran one of the most respected and admired people that I know. Emily is a wonderful human being with so many people that love her, and I feel specially blessed to know her.

  • Dr. Letran has been an inspiration to me ever since we met about four years ago. After reading her book I realized just what a remarkable person she is. She came to this country as a refugee when she was a child and has overcome so many obstacles to become a dentist, author, wife, mother, entrepeneur, coach and now philanthropist. She has to have more than 24 hours in her day. She has started this non profit so she can give back to the community by way of creating heathy smiles to underprivileged and underserved communities and veterans. I applaud you Dr. Letran and hope that everyone reading this will make a donation to help your humanitarian effort
