Dentists Who Care (DWC) is a non-profit charitable organization that was created in 1996 to help solve the problem of poor oral health among children and adults in the Rio Grande Valley. Their mission is to improve and enhance the quality of life for low-income families who have no dental insurance through access to oral health care.
To date, the organization has provided over $11million dollars in charitable care to over 30,000 children and adults. Dentists Who Care has been recognized by locally elected leaders, municipalities, and county commissioners as well as by former Governor George Bush.
Recognition from their professional ranks has also been received including citations from the Texas Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the ADA Health Foundation.
Since that time Dentists Who Care has enjoyed the service of many supportive and dedicated board members which have contributed to the growth and success of Dentists Who Care Mission.
“Our volunteers seek to eliminate roadblocks to care by volunteering their services; concurrently, we promote the methods of dental care delivery that are most efficient and have the highest quality outcomes,” said Jacqueline Flores, DWC Executive Director.
“Our Organization has been heartened during this challenging year to welcome new members to our Board. We’re excited to continue working with our Partners to serve the community and improve oral health outcomes in the Valley,” said Dr. Adam Lalonde, DWC Board President.
