picture of foundationlogoThe Foundation's Mission: The Pierce County Dental Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization formed in 2003. The Foundation was started to raise and disperse funds for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The unique aspect of the Foundation is that all money raised will be distributed exclusively in Pierce County.

PCDF has a goal of raising $1,000,000 for it's endowment fund. The proceeds will be used to support community programs that support access to care, building oral health awareness, and supporting the education of dental health professionals.

A Message from Pierce County Dental Foundation - Dr. Richard Coyner

A most heartfelt salute to all of you who participated in the third annual "Day for Smiles" campaign. Over $49,558 was pledged to the PCDF endowment which now holds over $300,000 toward our goal.

Covid - 19 has dramatically impacted our lives and avocation; however, we are still fortunate to have jobs. Many folks have severe financial hardships with the loss of employment, income, and benefits. Community clinics are stressed and most volunteer services are reduced. The Pierce County Dental Foundation is committed to serving those less fortunate in these trying times.

We look forward to next year. Thanks for making your generous contributions. Stay healthy.

Warm regards,
PCDF Board

Stay Healthy,
The PCDF Board
