WDA Foundation


The Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was developed in response to dentists’ requests for a way to provide tax-deductible contributions to charitable, scientific and educational oral health endeavors – particularly in the dental science and public health arenas.

Oral diseases and conditions continue to result in needless pain and suffering, difficulty in speaking, chewing and swallowing, increased costs of care, loss of self-esteem, loss of work and school days and, in extreme cases, oral conditions can even lead to death.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 40 percent of low-income adults have at least one untreated decayed tooth, compared to 16 percent of non-poor adults.

The U.S. Surgeon General recognizes oral health as an integral part of a person’s total health. No one can be truly healthy unless he or she is free from the burden of oral diseases and conditions.

Our Mission:

The Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation is committed to improving the oral health and overall well-being of Wisconsin residents while supporting the needs of the dental community.

Our Vision:

  • Improved oral health for all Wisconsin residents
  • Full support for those who provide oral care
  • Paving the way for tomorrow’s dental professionals

The Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation, Inc. is the WDA’s affiliated charity and home to various charitable oral health programs. The Foundation is guided by individual bylaws and is governed by an independent volunteer Board of Directors.

All donations to the WDA Foundation are deductible to the full extent of the law.

Your support makes this good work possible.
