The Capital Area Dental Foundation was formed in 2007 to address the charitable goals of the Capital Area Dental Society. CADS has a long history of supporting local organizations that serve those in our community without the means to seek dental care.  Because of the generosity of members of the Capital Area Dental Society, thousands have been treated in the past fourteen years, through various programs such as Donated Dental Services, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), and Season of Caring in conjunction with the Austin American Statesman, and Community Dental Days to name a few.

Most dentists in our community support the efforts of the foundation through financial support, leadership positions and direct patient care. In 2014, CADF was awarded the mid-size Austin Non Profit of The Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

The pandemic really put the brakes on charitable care and the foundation expects to hold a Community Dental Day soon.  This program allows dentists to volunteer a morning or a day on select Saturdays in larger clinical settings.
