GLENDALE, Ariz.—Delta Dental of Arizona, through its foundation, has announced a $1 million gift to the St. Vincent de Paul Dental Clinic helping to ensure both preventive and emergency oral health care for underserved children and adults for the next 10 years. The gift, presented at the annual St. Vincent de Paul Community Fundraising breakfast, is an example of Delta Dental of Arizona’s mission to improve the lives of Arizonans by promoting optimal oral health.

“We trust, and know, St. Vincent de Paul will execute our vision to provide improved oral health for Arizonans and are pleased to be able to participate in the delivery of additional quality dental care to more patients in need,” said Delta Dental of Arizona President and CEO Allan Allford. “A gift of this magnitude is unprecedented in our 45-year history—it’s a first for us and the right thing for us to do.”

Last year, St. Vincent de Paul embarked on a capital campaign to double the size of the dental clinic to better serve the needs of its clients. By 2019, the dental clinic will expand to 18 chairs and provide dental services to more than 10,000 patients a year. The $1 million gift will be used to help sustain the operations of the dental clinic through 2027, and the clinic will be renamed the Delta Dental Oral Health Center.

“Thanks to the generosity of Delta Dental of Arizona, St. Vincent de Paul will be able to continue to deliver state-of-the-art care at our dental clinic to Arizonans who have nowhere else to turn for help,” said St. Vincent de Paul Executive Director Steve Zabilski. “This donation is much more than just helping fix our patient’s smile; it’s life-changing as they can now attend school or work pain-free and we see their self-esteem soar making the difference between them landing a new job or promotion.”
