100% Of the proceeds stay in Pierce County to help those in dental need.
All proceeds for the “A Day for Smiles” goes to the Pierce County Dental Foundation Endowment fund. The fund has a goal of $1,000,000. Once the fund reaches $500,000 it will start disbursing the proceeds for oral health care for those in need, oral health education, and to support education for dental professionals. Currently the fund has over $480,000 in donations.
The Foundation has supported several community events to promote improved oral health such as: Pierce County Dentists Care Program, Bates Free Senior Dental Day,
Tacoma Rescue Mission Free Dental Day, Pierce County Veteran’s Resource Fair, Pierce County Dental Society Children’s Dental Health Day, oral hygiene supplies for schools in Pierce County and
Scholarships for Bates Technical College Dental Assisting Program, Clover Park Technical College Dental Assisting Program, Pierce College Dental Hygiene Program.
