Our Practice of Giving
The Ohio Dental Association Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the ODA and is managed by a Foundation Board of Trustees. In line with the ODA’s overarching mission, the purpose of the ODA Foundation is to improve the oral health of all Ohio citizens and enhance the dental profession throughout the state.
Through donor support, the ODA Foundation helps make a difference for future dentists and vulnerable populations in Ohio by awarding annual grants and scholarships. Hundreds of Ohio dental school students have received financial assistance and countless more uninsured and low-income Ohioans have received free dental care and a healthier smile thanks to community dental programs that we help.
We encourage our member dentists to get involved with the ODA Foundation, as your participation is vital to achieving our mission to advance dentistry and access to care throughout Ohio.
