A Message from Pierce County Dental Foundation - Dr. Richard Coyner
Fifth Annual Donate a Day for Smiles 2022
Our 2022 Donate a Day for Smiles was a great success thanks to our donors. Your generous efforts have raised over $420,000 towards our goal of one million. This will sustain our foundation to help other needy causes in the future.
Your foundation has contributed toward many areas including community low-cost clinics, free volunteer dental clinics, and our Pierce County dental school scholarships to Bates Technical College Dental Assisting Program, Clover Park Technical College Dental Assisting Program and Pierce College Dental Hygiene Program. All of our donations stay exclusively in Pierce County, which we are committed to.
Thank you for helping dental needs, care and education in Pierce County. We could not do this without your help and generosity.
