Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation


Good oral health means much more than a nice smile. A healthy mouth is essential to overall wellness.

The Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation's mission is to improve the oral health of Virginians through funding for research, educational outreach, and programs that provide access to care for the underserved. The Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation strives to achieve its mission through its Smart Smiles outreach program, which includes:


Smart Smiles® At the Dentist
This program provides much needed oral health care and education to children who lack dental insurance or who qualify for Medicaid or FAMIS.

Smart Smiles® In School
Our Smart Smiles in School program provides oral health education to students from Kingergarten to 5th grade through a fun, interactive curriculum, available free of charge to all Virginia elementary schools.

Smart Smiles® In the Community
Through its Smart Smiles In the Community program, the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation awards oral health grants to 501(c)(3) organizations to support efforts to improve oral health care in Virginia. Learn more:
