Mission Trips

Non-Profit

Operation Smile is a non-governmental nonprofit organization with a worldwide reach.  The nonprofit’s mission is to provide cleft lip and palate repair operations to children worldwide.  By enlisting the help of professionally trained volunteers, Operation Smile provides children in need with life-changing procedures. The initiative also empowers through education by facilitating lessons on left issues and organizes a variety of student leadership programs.  While some people might feel an emphasis on the aesthetic nature of Cosmetic Procedures, Dr. Paul Drago believes that Operation Smile is demonstrative proof that his work is not all about appearance.  In fact, as Operation Smile’s incredible accomplishments demonstrate, Cosmetic Procedures often have functional elements that truly make a difference in an individual’s health and wellness.

A faith-focused volunteer, Dr. Paul Drago is fulfilled by the opportunity to go on mission trips with his church.  He has completed numerous mission trips over the years, both in the United States and abroad. One of Drago’s favorite mission trips was to the Caribbean, where he volunteered for the benefit of people in the Dominican Republic.  Most recently, Drago packed up his expertise in Cosmetic Procedures and his knowledge as an ENT Specialist for a mission trip with Operation Smile.

Even when he’s off the clock, Dr. Paul Drago is passionate about helping people. A devoted church volunteer, he regularly does his part to empower members of his community who are in need. Drago has also carried his professional expertise with him while embarking on mission trips around the world.
