“Throughout a person’s lifespan,
the relationship between oral
health, overall health and
well-being is based on prevention.”

OUR MISSION: The North Carolina Dental Society Foundation
promotes oral health to improve the quality of life for North Carolinians.

WHO WE ARE

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 to the Foundation and volunteerism, we work to improve oral health for North Carolinians.

WHO WE HELP

We help a variety of North Carolinians in need – including children, veterans and adults. Some have never been to a dentist. From prevention and education to treatment, we focus on those who are in dire need of help. More than 35% of children enter kindergarten with some tooth decay. Statewide, 21% of adults 65+ have lost all their teeth. The Foundation works to put smiles back on the faces of our neighbors.

HOW YOU CAN MAKE
A DIFFERENCE

Throughout the state, gifts to the North Carolina Dental Society Foundation from individuals, corporations, agencies and communities are transforming people’s lives. People once reluctant to smile or talk because they were embarrassed about their teeth are 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 do more every day!
