It is an unfortunate reality that many people are unable to afford basic dental treatment due to limited income and lack of dental insurance. Their financial obstacles prevent them from seeking treatment, and as a result they often experience pain, infection and significant dental problems. In turn, this can lead to poor self-esteem, social anxiety, and difficulty gaining employment.
Treatment through the FDCP has life-impacting results for program patients, even beyond improving their oral health. This type of opportunity can be an invaluable turning point and a catalyst toward a future built on stronger mental/emotional/physical well-being; helping patients overcome obstacles that they previously felt were insurmountable, and opening doors to more opportunities.
Donations and Corporate Sponsorships are the lifeline of the work we do here at the FDCP, and each and every dollar makes a difference in someone’s life!*
All general monies donated to FDCA will support the FDCP program, directed toward the subsidized dental treatment provided to our low-income patients. In no way are the individual dentists involved in the project or Fundy Dental Centre able to benefit from your donation or profit from their participation in the project.
(*) Individuals who donate are able to receive an Official Tax Receipt.
