CDA Foundation establishes disaster relief grant for dental professionals

The loss of life and devastating damage caused by the Northern and Southern California area wildfires is heartbreaking to say the least. Thousands have been affected as the fires ravage through their lives — destroying homes, businesses, schools and entire communities. Already, several dentists and their staff members have lost their homes.

To help dental professionals in need, the CDA Foundation has established a Disaster Relief Grant for individuals — a one-time, single-installment grant that provides financial assistance of up to $2,500 per California dentist, dental staff member or component staff member for immediate and emergency needs (food, shelter, clothing, etc.) as a direct result of the October 2017 California wildfires. The Disaster Relief Grant is also available to nonprofit organizations that meet eligibility requirements. For assistance with recovery efforts, those who have been affected by these wildfires are encouraged to apply for this grant:

Those who would like to contribute to relief efforts through this grant may do so by visiting cdafoundation.org/donate.

Additionally, The Dentists Insurance Company is offering guidance and support to assist members in dealing with the impact on their practices. To reach a TDIC service representative or a risk management analyst, call 800.733.0633.

CDA and its family of companies will continue all efforts to help its members in need during this difficult time.
