What the foundation does for organized dentistry 68% of members volunteer their time to dental charities* *CDS survey, November 2011 The foundation makes visible the society’s commitment to improving oral health that our members make in their practices every day.
It burnishes the reputation of dentistry-- that we are deeply committed to helping people live healthy lives by taking care of their oral health.
It provides members with opportunities to give back and help the profession.
