Giving Back to the Communities We Serve
We're different than most dental insurance companies. We're a not-for-profit. We don't just believe that everyone deserves good oral health; we invest millions of dollars to help people achieve it. Our dedication to the community is what sets us apart from other carriers. It's also one of the keys to our success.
Oral Health Initiatives
Delta Dental has publicly supported numerous oral health initiatives, including community water fluoridation programs, and works closely with city and state politicians, public health departments and oral health experts to address the oral health issues in the community.
Delta Dental of Arizona is proud to be a contributor to and supporter of the efforts of local dental and oral health programs, services and events. Our corporate giving focuses on those communities not served by the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation and our employees serve on the boards of numerous civic organizations in the Phoenix area.
Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation
Founded in 1997, the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation was created to promote oral health and prevent dental disease in children and youth through age 18, with a particular emphasis in underserved and uninsured communities.
Unlike many nonprofit organizations, 100% of the contributions received through the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation are used for programs and services in the community (not administrative costs). As a result, donors know that every penny they contribute is used entirely for programs that serve children.
Since its inception, the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation has provided more than $5 million in community grants to oral health promotion and dental disease prevention programs in Arizona.
