Through the generosity of countless volunteers and donors, the CDA Foundation has helped so many Californians in need through its two flagship programs; CDA Cares and the Student Loan Repayment Program. In addition, the CDA Foundation has provided dental materials and supplies grants to community-based organizations to help provide access to care for California's most vulnerable citizens.

The CDA Foundation has announced Allen Wong, DDS, EdD, as this year’s recipient of its Dr. Arthur A. Dugoni Faculty Award. The award acknowledges and supports eligible faculty affiliated with the state’s six dental schools for their exceptional leadership, innovation, collaboration, compassion, philanthropic spirit and integrity in dental education. It was developed to support individuals who contribute to the scholarly and creative activities of California dental students.
