Support & Donations


Dental research is critically important to the future of dentistry.

The Foundation is a major source for funding of dental and oral health research in Australia today, as it has been since its founding in 1970. To date, it has dispersed $3.5 million through the awarding of 2,050 grants and scholarships, advancing dental knowledge and practice on many fronts.

Essential to its commitment to funding dental research is the ongoing support of the dental industry and dental professionals and interested members of the public. To continue and grow this vital work, the Foundation invites you to become a supporter or make a general donation. All donations are tax deductible.
