CREATING HEALTHY LIVES AROUND THE WORLD

Global Foundation for Dental Healthcare and Awareness, Inc. has a mission to educate underserved populations on the mouth & body connections and provide free medical and dental treatment to reduce oral and overall health disparities around the world.

Many are not aware of the connection between oral and overall health; dentistry is often one of the most overlooked areas in healthcare. Individuals around the world are in desperate need of our services.

Our vision is to transform the lives of underserved populations by bridging the gap with free medical and dental care to individuals without care.
