About the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation

Everyone deserves a healthy smile.

A healthy smile is a powerful thing. That's why the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation is committed to improving the oral health of all Virginians. But good oral health means much more than a nice smile. A healthy mouth is essential to overall wellness.

The Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation reports its community impact work annually through the Delta Dental Plans Association. The Delta Dental system provides community support in all fifty states and our national community impact efforts addressed our communities' most pressing needs last year, including responding to COVID-19, addressing health inequities and disparities, and advancing oral health.
