About the Foundation

Established in 1969, the 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity arm of the dental society provides dental services to those who otherwise would not be able to afford it, focusing especially on children. The Foundation is funded solely through contributions, bequests, fundraising events, donation of services, planned giving and grants.
