The AGD Foundation is celebrating 50 years of striving toward philanthropic goals and providing opportunities for dentists to get involved. There is still much work to be done -- your donation will expand the number of dentists and patients we are able to impact with our oral cancer screening and awareness programs. These critical funds will be used to meet the following objectives:
- Continue to provide free oral/oropharyngeal cancer screenings throughout the United States.
- Develop, create and distribute free, easily accessible oral and oropharyngeal cancer educational resources for dentists, patients, physicians, public health departments, schools and more.
- Increase financial grants to AGD constituencies and nonprofit programs that educate the public about oral/oropharyngeal cancer risk factors and prevention.
Protecting the oral health of the general public is no small task, but it’s possible with your help. Member service representatives are available to assist you weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST. Call us at 518-694-5545.
