About Us

Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease. An epidemic even worse for children from families struggling with poverty.

AAPD Foundation 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 American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), we are connected to more pediatric dentists than any other national child oral care charity.

Please join us as a donor, a grantee, or a volunteer as we work to ensure every child has a dental home.

Help more children in need!
