Giving by the Dental Community and the Community at Large

The Manitoba Dental Foundation was established in 2015 with its vision of serving as the heart of philanthropic giving for the dental community of Manitoba.

The Manitoba Dental Foundation is committed to improving the oral health of the underserved of all ages in Manitoba, and supporting outreach to all communities in need.

Manitoba Dental Foundation Board of Directors

The Manitoba Dental Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from the
Manitoba Dental Association, the Winnipeg Dental Society, the University of Manitoba Dental Alumni Association, Senior and Vice Stick of the University of Manitoba Dental 
Students Association and the Western Manitoba Dental Society and individuals from the broader community who are committed
to the objectives of the Foundation.

Dr. Patrick Mao is the Foundation’s current President.

We invite all Manitoba dentists to join in supporting the Manitoba Dental Foundation. By uniting our funding resources, the Manitoba Dental Foundation will improve and enhance oral health through services provided by other organizations that meet our mission statements.

Through the charitable act of giving, individuals and corporations can make a difference in improving the oral health of the underserved of all ages in Manitoba and beyond
