Dr. Marcy Borofsky

Dr. Marcy Borofsky, DDS PT MPH, created and founded the Smile Programs, a unique and innovate way to deliver dental care to under-served, low-income children. Dental decay is the number one unmet health need for low-income children and is five times more common than asthma. The US Surgeon General has determined that 52 million school hours a year are lost due to oral health pain and related issues, most of which are preventable. For children, 85 percents of all tooth decay occurs in the poorest 25 percent of the population. It is a disease of socio-economic disparity. By developing agreements with many large urban school districts, HeadStart and pre-school programs the Smile Programs are able to deliver care to 500,000 children each year. School districts in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Baltimore, Philadelphia and many others partner with Smile Programs to deliver dental care to children-in-need. Dr. Borofsky is a past honoree of the Jewish Fund, Zionist Organization of America, and a recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation award. Dr. Borofsky is on the Dean’s Advisory Board of Harvard Dental School and on the Board of Directors of Sentinel Capital Partners Private Equity Portfolio Company and Morgan Stanley Private Equity Portfolio Company of Reachout Healthcare. Dr. Borofsky is a 1984 graduate of University of Michigan Dental School and a 2011 Graduate of Columbia University MPH program.
