Quality Oral Health Care Possible for All
To facilitate the delivery of charitable oral health care to the underserved
To be America's premier equipment and expertise resource for large-scale charitable dental clinics
ADCF Provides the Tools. Dentists Provide the Care.
America’s Dentists Care Foundation (ADCF) is a national non-profit organization located in Wichita, Kansas, dedicated to delivering oral health care to the underserved. ADCF supports dental Mission of Mercy (MOM) clinics and other charitable clinics that provide free oral health care to any person who attends. We also support larger-scale comprehensive care clinics or smaller-scale clinics for specific populations, such as our country’s veterans.
Since 2008, ADCF-supported clinics in 31 states have provided 290,000 patients with more than $200 million in charitable oral health care. At a typical two-day event, about 1,400 dental and lay volunteers come together to serve an average of 1,600 patients. ADCF provides not only equipment and instruments, but also guidance and proven practices necessary to host successful events.
Missions of Mercy dental clinics start in Virginia, and continue to spread throughout the country.
ADCF was established after volunteer dentists from Kansas and Nebraska realized the need for a foundation that could own, maintain, and provide the equipment required to host a clinic. That year, ADCF supported six clinics that provided 8,000 patients with $2.8 million in free oral health care.
In addition to our two 100-unit trailers, ADCF launched a 45-unit trailer for states wanting to host smaller-scale clinics.
ADCF celebrates its 10-year anniversary and also its biggest year to date with 25 clinics that helped 30,000 patients receive more than $22 million in charitable dental services.
