Our Foundation

DDNJ Foundation 35 years of empowering healthy smiles

Since 1986, our philanthropic arm, the Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation, Inc., has worked to promote and assist educational projects devoted to the enhancement of dental health, as well as access to dental care programs designed to increase public awareness of the general benefits of good oral health and to improve dental health through the science of dentistry. Each year, the Foundation also provides financial support to various organizations throughout New Jersey, as well as Connecticut, to reach underserved populations, specifically children, developmentally disabled persons, seniors and veterans. 

The Mission of the Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation is: To improve the oral health of New Jersey and Connecticut residents by providing charitable contributions to solve oral health care challenges.

Our Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization, and we pride ourselves on the variety of programs we have instituted or supported that aid the needy, educate the community, and assist worthwhile oral health related organizations. To date, our Foundation has awarded more than $19.7 million toward dental care for the underinsured and uninsured and dental education programs.The Foundation funds projects only in New Jersey and Connecticut.
