About Cosmetic Dentistry Grants
The Cosmetic Dentistry Grants (CDG) Program is owned and operated by the Oral Aesthetic Advocacy Group Inc, (OAAG) a research, information and funding organization founded in 2010 by dental practitioners and industry professionals.
The fundamental mission of our Organization is founded in the belief that everyone deserves a confident, healthy smile.
We advance our mission by way of our community gift-giving program, Cosmetic Dentistry Grants, which provides up to $1 Million in funding grants each year for cosmetic and dental implant dentistry procedures that help people improve their self confidence, overall oral health and general aesthetic appearance.
The CDG program is a not-for-profit organization, however the dentists who are affiliated with the program do pay a fee for each patient they are referred. It is only through this fee that the organization is able to issue grants, promote its advocacy programs, run media campaigns and sustain the program itself. Participating dentists understand that not every patient referred to their practice will follow through with their recommended treatment plan or will becoming a recurring patient. Occasionally a practice must even deal with the frustration of patient “no-shows”, and even with no guarantees our dentists remain committed to their work of transforming people’s smiles.
Additionally, the Organization creates and supports programs that foster a positive relationship between dentists, their patients and their local communities.
The CDG program is dedicated to providing cosmetic and dental implant care at reduced cost to all persons that are not fully satisfied with their smile. We intend to continually achieve this by:
- Raising awareness of the benefits of a confident smile.
- Providing contributing dental practitioners with patient-focused advocacy programs; and,
- Expanding our Organization to new communities across North America every year.
Up to $1 Million of net proceeds and resources will be allocated to grant applicants each year, distributed on a monthly basis.
