Founded in 1998 by the Dallas County Dental Society, the Dallas County Dental Society Foundation is a charitable resource for providing Dallas County with essential oral health care needs. Since 1998 the Dallas County Dental Society Foundation has had the opportunity to:
- Provide over $3.3 million in care to more than 5080 underserved patients at Texas Mission of Mercy held in Dallas since 2004 in partnership with the Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation.
- Educate elementary school children in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) and other Dallas County schools about oral health.
- Place sealants on elementary school students in DISD schools.
- Launch two programs in conjunction with the Dallas Dental Hygienists' Association to provide oral health education in schools (ToothTalk) and nursing homes (Senior Smiles) in the Dallas area.
- Collaborate with Attitudes and Attire program to promote volunteers to provide dentistry to Hopeful Smiles and Boots to Heels programs.
- Offer scholarships to dentists interested in public service.


The mission of Dallas County Dental Society Foundation is to enhance oral health in our community.


Hosting Texas Mission of Mercy events is our biggest budgeted expenditure. These are held every two years, with the next event taking place April 2025 specifically to support the oral health needs of Veterans. The Dallas County Dental Society Foundation would like to raise $30,000 towards the event, and we will also solicit additional funds and in-kind gifts from corporations for the event.

We also need donations to provide oral health kits (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, educational literature) for underserved children/adults during health fairs and for our seniors in assisted living communities.
