Our Core Strategies

We help dentists help patients through education, coaching, and communication.

We provide education, prevention, and treatment of adults and children in need through free-clinic settings and support of local community clinics.

 

Our Values

We value collaborating with others to achieve the common goal of improving the oral health of North Carolinians.

We embody qualities of justness, fairness, and impartiality.

We appreciate and celebrate the respective needs of each individual or group we serve.

We’d love to hear from you!
