We run a comprehensive charity dental clinic that provides treatment and preventive care to children and adults without insurance and inspires thousands to healthier hygiene every year. 

The Society of Kids' Smiles Protected

54% of kids suffer from untreated cavities.

Helps sustain our work to treat those in need with a monthly donation. 

Inside St. Vincent de Paul's Virginia G. Piper Dental Clinic, there's more to the Delta Dental of Arizona Oral Health Center than meets the mouth. Untreated dental problems can have devastating effects on one's overall health and self-esteem. Working with local schools, we identify children with serious dental needs along with the inability to address them. For these kids, we provide comprehensive treatment plans that include teaching them oral hygiene skills. Thanks to the help of volunteer dentists and dental professionals, we're able to provide adult dental services as well, ranging from cleanings and fillings to extractions and denture fittings.

COVID-19 Update: Due to the pandemic and backlog of patients of record, the dental lottery at the clinic will be suspended until further notice. However, we will continue to treat emergency patients on an as needed basis. Starting May 18, the clinic will open to treat patients of record, but at a reduced capacity. The reduced capacity allows us to comply with all the necessary protocols concerning infection control to ensure patient, faculty and staff safety. We ask that patients wear a mask to their scheduled appointments and observe social distancing in the clinic. All patients will be screened prior to entry into the clinic for possible COVID-19 symptoms.
