Smiles Foundation (TDASF)
“We are on a mission to improve the oral health of all Texans, children and adults, by ensuring access to dental care and raising public understanding of the importance of oral health.”
The TDA Smiles Foundation sponsors events to give relief from dental pain to the underserved adults and children of Texas who do not receive the dental care they need. Alliance members, dentists, hygienists, lab technicians, and citizens of the local community volunteer at the TDASF’s Texas Mission of Mercy (TMOM) events held across the state.
As of May, 2014, the Alliance has contributed in excess of forty-five-thousand dollars ($45,000.00) for the purchase of dental equipment used at the Texas Mission of Mercy events. The Alliance continues to support these projects.
The Alliance of the TDA is represented by a liaison to the TDA Smiles Foundation Board.
