Bill Blasing

Executive Director

I consider it a true blessing and a genuine honor to get to do what I do every day...

Being a part of the ADCF mission, in concert with our clinic family and generous donors across America, makes every day an adventure that I don't even consider ‘work’ in its traditional sense. I consider it a true blessing and a genuine honor to get to do what I do every day with an amazing team and committed board of directors that I deeply admire and respect.

Bringing with him years of experience related to operating a business and leading teams effectively, Bill Blasing joined the ADCF as our executive director in 2015. He is not only adept at ensuring the overall business goals of our organization are met, but Bill is skilled in cultivating opportunities that add value to our charitable clinic family and their patients around America. He is responsible for all aspects related to human resources, operations, budgeting, fundraising and donor relations.

Bill is a member of several local non-profit groups, the Wichita Chamber of Commerce and his church, where he has served in various capacities. Bill is married to his elementary school sweetheart, Gina, whom he considers his best friend. He enjoys cruising in his first car, a 1971 Chevelle Malibu, which also happens to be the car he courted Gina in during high school.

Based in our corporate Wichita office, she is the main support to our executive director and an integral part of daily operations.

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.

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.
