Giving Back to Our Communities

Every year across the U.S., employees of Affordable Care and supported dental practices donate their time and resources to support patients in need of access to dental care. Our organization was founded on the principle of serving our communities, and we remain committed to providing access to those who are unable to afford dental care.

“Affordable Care’s Philosophy is front and center as we work to provide a team environment for doctors and staff from supported dental practices to learn from some of the best faculty in the country while making a positive impact in the lives of people who traditionally would not have access to high quality dental care."

- Jim Smyros, Senior Director of Operations, Implant Services, Affordable Care

Making a Difference Through Implant Training

Several times a year, Affordable Care facilitates a week-long Implant Training program for doctors and staff from supported dental practices.

The training provides a lecture and live surgery experience that focuses on team building and teaching the surgical and restorative elements of implant dentistry. 

The patients treated in the program are patients in need who are unable to afford dental care, including homeless individuals, military veterans -- many who do not receive dental benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs — and victims of domestic abuse.

Free Dentures at Mission of Mercy Clinics 

Through support from Affordable Care, affiliated Affordable Dentures & Implants employees and practices make a positive difference at free dental clinics hosted by Mission of Mercy chapters across the U.S. The mobile clinics provide free dental services including cleanings, fillings, oral surgery, x-rays and dentures to patients in need. The Affordable Care team provides on-site dental labs to fabricate dentures for patients.

The video below highlights our volunteer support at a Mission of Mercy dental clinic for Military Veterans.
