To make significant, lasting improvements in oral health in Washington, the WDS Foundation focuses on:
- Early intervention and the prevention of oral disease
- Improving access to dental services
- Increasing the households that have fluoridated drinking water
- Advocating for sound oral health public policy
We identify progressive practices, advocate for policy change, implement pilot projects, expand or replicate proven models, and employ strategic grant-making to accomplish our mission.
We focus specifically on young children and seniors, two groups particularly vulnerable to oral disease, and feel this is where we can make the greatest difference.
