The Minnesota Dental Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public foundation providing charitable programs and services to improve the oral health of underserved Minnesotans. The foundation gives dentists and donors the opportunity to experience the collective power of giving and invest in the future of dentistry.
The Minnesota Dental Foundation annually publishes a report on progress made towards its vision of eliminating unmet oral health needs in Minnesota. Its primary purpose is to demonstrate that donations made to the Foundation are used wisely, efficiently and effectively to help those who have difficulty accessing dental care in Minnesota.
