The CDA Foundation
The CDA Foundation was established in 2001 to be the charitable arm of the California Dental Association. By providing grant opportunities to community-based organizations and individuals, and promoting disease prevention, risk assessment and treatment initiatives, the Foundation seeks to address the immediate needs of vulnerable populations who cannot benefit from dental treatment due to a lack of basic resources like dental insurance, adequate finances or access to transportation. The Foundation works with experts in the dental profession, private businesses, academic and government institutions in their efforts to increase access to dental care, promote prevention education and intervention, advance health policy research and build a sustainable oral health workforce.
