CDHA supports our local children in need. Our Children's
Dental Health Center, School-based and outreach programs target economically disadvantaged, underserved children. In the areas where most of our patients live, a weighted average of 50% of the families have incomes below $25,000. We pride ourselves on providing a high-quality, low-cost remedy to patients who would traditionally have little or no access to dental care.

Dear Friends of the CDHA:

Contribute onlineHappy National Children’s Dental Health month to you! Since 1941, the American Dental Association has used the entire month of February to educate on the importance of dental health to the overall health and well-being of children. It is important to not only strive to better the oral health of our nation’s children but to also celebrate our successes.

At the Children’s Dental Health Association, we focus on dental health every day as we provide treatment and education to the underserved children of San Diego. Children under our care are enjoying pain-free lives and improved self-esteem. Yet, there are many more children out there who still need our help.

The work that is done through our organization is made possible by generous donations from private individuals, corporations and grants. We also augment our budget through fundraisers like the bi-yearly Gala and our annual Day at the Races at the Del Mar Racetrack.

Every other year in February, we run a “Contribution Drive”. We simply ask that you consider a monetary donation directly to our organization. In return, you have my assurance that we will responsibly use your contribution to bring healthy smiles to children. We have been careful stewards of donations and grants for over 60 years.

Your tax-deductible donation can be made directly to CDHA, 1270-24th Street, San Diego, CA 92102 or on-line by clicking the blue button.

I thank you in advance for your thought and consideration and I hope that you will make the decision to help make a child’s life healthier and happier. I am grateful for my own dental health and I hope that you will, that “every child deserves a healthy smile”.
