Staff and Board
A Shared Passion for Helping the Underserved
At the America’s Dentists Care Foundation (ADCF), our team is passionate about helping to make quality oral health care a reality for the underserved. We invite you to learn more about our team and board of directors.
Meet the ADCF Team
ADCF has a more than a decade of experience partnering with dental clinic organizers and ensuring the success of such events. In addition to the equipment for dental clinics, we provide pre-clinic guidance and expert support the day of the event.
Senior Program Manager
I like being a part of something that helps others. Getting to see the smiles of people who haven't previously been able to get dental care is the most rewarding part of the job.
As a senior program manager at the ADCF, Ben Hopper manages daily warehouse operations, including staff duties and expectations, safety, cleanliness, equipment, parts and maintenance. Ben also works with our executive director to manage equipment costs and budget expectations. Prior to the ADCF, he attended college, and then as an employee has become certified for forklift operation and obtained training on Air Techniques and A-dec equipment.
Ben enjoys playing sports like indoor soccer and slow pitch softball, gaming and spending time with friends.
Meet the ADCF Board
The ADCF was established to address the lack of quality equipment available for dental Mission of Mercy (MOM) events. Representatives from each of the participating states have joined for the purpose of acquiring, maintaining and shipping the expensive dental equipment needed to host a state-run MOM event.
