About Your WSAPD Foundation

On December 12, 1995, the Foundation began with only $250, and by 2014, over $170,000 has been raised. The founding members of the WSAPD Foundation defined a mission to improve the oral health of Washington’s children, as well as support advanced education in pediatric dentistry. Over the past 20 years, the Foundation has supported resident research and education, and established an endowment for ongoing program support at the University of Washington Center for Pediatric Dentistry.
