Delta Dental of Arizona contributed over $1 million to 100 organizations last year, helping 245,200 Arizona residents achieve their healthiest smiles. 

Nationally, Delta Dental companies donated more than $76 million in direct and in-kind community outreach in 2019, impacting the lives of more than 12 million people and funding more than 1,700 programs.

“Promoting good oral health is our business, and as an organization that keeps our Arizona communities at top of mind, Delta Dental of Arizona and our Foundation continue to look at ways to improve the oral health of residents facing significant barriers to dental care and services,” said Delta Dental of Arizona president and CEO Allan Allford. 

“We are committed to helping uninsured and underserved communities all across the state have access to oral health services they need for a healthy smile.”

Delta Dental of Arizona’s partnership with Tooth BUDDS, a school-based teledentistry program in Graham and Greenlee counties, provides oral health education and treatment to over 600 children a year.

Founded in 1997, the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation is the charitable arm of Delta Dental of Arizona, the dental benefits company. Its mission is to improve oral health, particularly for underserved and uninsured groups and communities. For more information, visit
