Dental Supply Donation Program (Smile Bags)

Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation provides donations of dental hygiene supplies to help support its mission to create a path to better health and wellness. This program gives dental supplies to nonprofit organizations delivering oral health education to underserved and uninsured populations.

Inside a Smile Bag

Every Smile Bag contains basic dental care necessities to help keep a smile healthy and bright. Typically, Smile Bags include:

  • One toothbrush (infant, junior, youth or adult)
  • Toothpaste (youth or adult)
  • Floss
  • Education card (bilingual English/Spanish)

Oral health instructions, screenings or other dental health services should be provided with distribution.
