Every Child Deserves a Dental Home
Tooth decay (cavities) is the single most common childhood disease and hundreds of thousands of children nationwide go untreated each year because of financial hardship. Worse, cavities often are the least of the oral health concerns for many children.
That’s why Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: The Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry strives to ensure every child has a dental home – a place where they can receive consistent, compassionate dental care. We fund and cultivate community-based initiatives where pediatric dentists and other oral health professionals help the underserved.
Affiliated with the 9,200-member American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we are connected to more pediatric dentists than any other national child oral care charity. Who better than pediatric dentists to lead the way in helping solve the oral health problems of children?
Please join us as a donor, a grantee, a volunteer or all of the above as we work to ensure every child has a dental home.
