Working Together...

Providing Over $4,000,000 to Those in Need

The Oral Health Foundation of the Pierre Fauchard Academy was created to provide monetary grants to support projects that will benefit the dental profession and the public it serves. Since 1995, the Foundation has supported over 600 grants and $4,000,000 towards helping hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.  The need is great!  Together, through the financial support of the Foundation and the dedication of dental professionals, we have and will continue to enhance the quality of oral health care around the world.

Grant selection is primarily based on those programs that increase access and provide care to the deserving, but inadequately served public.  Emphasis for funding is given to those worthy grant applications where Foundation support will have the greatest impact and on the potential success of the proposed program.

Only non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations and individuals employed by such organizations are eligible to receive Foundation funding.  

Grants are awarded up to the following amounts: $5,000 for Pierre Fauchard Academy Section programs in which a significant number of Fellows participate; and $10,000 for Service projects that provide increased access to dental care for the public in need.
