Our Mission & Vision
We are a collaborative community dedicated to preventing dental disease and providing education and dental care to Arizona’s underserved citizens.
AzDA Cares is creating a cooperative community committed to compassionate and competent oral health for all Arizonans, regardless of their ability to pay. Our ultimate goal is to prevent dental disease, even as we work to treat and restore dental health. We envision a long-standing commitment to improving the health of Arizonans, both celebrating our accomplishments so far while determined to eliminate the oral health crisis we face in our state.
We promote and maintain oral and systemic health by providing education around oral hygiene and gathering support among professionals to help us teach prevention to those in their care.
We use education to improve public awareness and involvement in oral health through coordinated initiatives, events, and outreach to engage legislators, civic leaders, and the community at large.
AzDA Cares provides dental treatment with compassion and an emphasis on quality. Imperative procedures at our community events help to restore oral health and help stop or reverse dental disease.
The AzDA Cares Foundation is the combination of two esteemed non-profit organizations, the Arizona Dental Foundation and the Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation. With a shared passion for promoting dental wellness and improving access to oral care, this union represents a powerful step towards enhancing the well-being of individuals in our region.
For many years, both the Arizona Dental Foundation and the Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation have been working diligently to provide critical dental services to underserved populations, raising oral health awareness, and supporting dental education initiatives. Together, they have positively influenced the lives of countless individuals, making smiles brighter and changing lives.
The new AzDA Cares Foundation is determined to make a lasting impact on oral health disparities and advance the overall well-being of our community. Together, we can brighten more smiles and create a healthier, happier future.
Thank you for being an essential part of this journey. Your support has always been the foundation of our success, and we are thrilled to have you alongside us as we embark on this transformative path.
