WELCOME TO WCCDF.ORG
Founded in 2020, The We Care Community Dental Foundation (WCCDF) is a mission-driven organization committed to increasing access to oral health care and delivering patient-centric quality care in local and international underserved communities. We believe oral health care is a basic human right, and everyone should be able to access great quality dental care. Our organization finds areas in which we can make the most profound difference and those that reflect our organizational value of service.At WCCDF, we understand dental care is more than fixing teeth. Great dental care improves overall health, self-esteem, and quality of life. Our programs and services address different communities and populations' unique needs, from children to seniors, low-income families to individuals with disabilities.Our main focus is providing affordable or free dental services to individuals needing dental help, such as cleanings, fillings, root canals, extractions, crowns, and dentures. We also support and collaborate with other organizations and providers to offer preventive, educational, and referral services.The WCCDF is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization with the mission to improve the oral health of the local underserved community through volunteering and funding along with the vision to support projects and programs with a component that improves the oral health of the underserved community. The WCCDF manages and administers grants, donations, and contributions to sustain community outreach services and activities and promotes volunteer service opportunities to help the underserved and educate the public on oral healthcare.The WCCDF is governed by a Board of Directors composed of dental professionals, community leaders, and representatives of the population we serve. The Board sets policies, oversees the management, and ensures the accountability and transparency of the organization.The WCCDF is affiliated with WE CARE DENTAL providers and support staff to provide dental treatment for selected individuals in need in their local community. These patients need fillings, root canals, extractions, crowns, and dentures, who cannot afford extensive care and have no insurance to cover. These patients may receive pro-bono services to restore their smiles.
Improving Confidence. Changing Lives. One Smile at a Time.

“I was in dental pain and needed extractions, but financial issues prevented me from getting a dental treatment,” says our senior patient David. “With the WCCDF grant, I had dental treatment that relieved my pain and received immediate dentures. The care and compassion I received from the WCCDF team were truly outstanding. Not only did they help alleviate my pain, but they also helped restore my confidence and self-esteem. I am so grateful for the WCCDF and their impact on my life.”

"I was so self-conscious about my teeth, affecting my daily life. I avoided smiling, taking pictures, and even speaking in public. The WCCDF team treated my dental issues and gave me the needed support and encouragement. The whole experience was truly life-changing. I am now able to smile with confidence, and it has had a positive impact on all aspects of my life. I am forever grateful to the WCCDF and the team who helped me get my smile back."
