OUR MISSION: Helping dentists help patients.


OUR VISION: A better quality of life for North Carolinians through improved oral health.


The North Carolina Dental Society Foundation is committed to serving children and adults from underserved households through education, prevention and free-clinic settings. Through financial contributions and volunteerism, we work to improve oral health for North Carolinians.


We help North Carolinians in need – including children, veterans and adults. Some have never been to a dentist. From prevention and education to treatment, the Foundation focuses on individuals in dire need. More than 35% of children enter kindergarten with some tooth decay, and 21% of seniors statewide have lost all their teeth. We put smiles back on the faces of our neighbors.


Throughout the state, gifts to the Foundation from individuals, corporations, agencies and communities are transforming lives. People once reluctant to smile or talk because they were embarrassed about their teeth are now smiling again. Kids who couldn’t focus in school due to pain are healthier and learning.

Better oral health begins with a strong Foundation.

With the generosity of our donors and
community partners, we can make an even bigger impact.
