Poor oral health causes American children to lose 51 million
school days each year*. Poor families are forced to make choices
between paying rent and food or medicine. Oral Health is the least worry on
their minds, but play an important roll in the overall health of a child. Four
to five million children have tooth decay that interferes with routine
activities, including eating, speaking and attending to learning* Community
Dental Foundation provides mobile dental service in a very modern and efficient
fully equipped mobile dental clinic which goes to underserved areas to the
where the concentration and the needs for urgent dental
care is the highest. We provide this service right on site. Community Dental
Foundation was established to be able to help provide mobile dental services to
all children in the less fortunate financial situations in underserved areas
regardless of whether or not they have dental insurance.

- community centers
- foster homes, etc
Community Dental Foundation is dedicated to improving the
oral health of children and individuals with no dental insurance and low
incomes by providing accessible treatment and education to their community.
In November, 2006, the founders got involved with providing
dental services in underserved areas for children. By dealing personally with
the population in poverty, especially the children that needed dental work, the
founders recognized there were still too many children that were not able to
get urgent needed dental services. Many parents are just not financially stable
enough to afford dental insurance and often do not know about the influence of
dental care for the total health care of their children. We decided to jump in
to help these innocent children to be healthy and educate them about oral
health to hopefully prepare and educate the next generation to break this
cycle. In 2000, there were 108 million Americans who had lack of dental
insurance and many of them are not able to afford to visit a dentist.
Realizing the great need for dental services for the
uninsured, the founders created Community Dental Foundation to assist in
building a better future for the children!
