Welcome to the Dental Foundation of Oregon
The DFO is dedicated to advancing oral health education, providing charitable care, and coordinating resources for Oregon’s children and vulnerable communities.

Oregon Children Suffer More Dental Pain and Infection Than Children in Almost Any Other State and They Need Your Help!

Here is a stunning fact: Oregon children have among the worst oral health in the nation. Because of poverty, lack of access to care, and other social and economic issues, Oregon children suffer more dental pain and infection than children in almost any other state. Kids in pain get sick and miss school. In fact, Oregon educators estimate that on any given day over 5,000 children are suffering from dental pain or infection. Dental disease isn't just a cosmetic problem. Poor oral health affects overall health. When decay goes untreated, children may face even greater problems as adults, including chronic conditions that contribute to lung disease, stroke, and bacterial pneumonia. In rare cases, oral infections have even led to death.
The Dental Foundation of Oregon provides direct care and oral health education to underserved children on our Tooth Taxi free mobile dental clinic. We educate the public about the oral health challenges and we advocate for programs and policies that improve care for kids. We are funded by individuals, corporations and foundations who care deeply about improving children's oral health.

2019 Chip! for Teeth Golf Tournament

Join us Friday, June 14, 2019 at Langdon Farms Golf Course


For 15 years, Dental Foundation of Oregon supporters have traveled from all parts of Oregon for a delicious breakfast buffet, morning on the greens followed by a luncheon awards banquet. Your involvement this year will help us achieve our goal to raise $50,000 to help Oregon’s children and vulnerable communities receive important dental and oral health care.

The day begins at 6:30 a.m. with a hot breakfast buffet followed by a 7:45 a.m. scramble format, shotgun start. A southern barbeque buffet lunch will be served soon after players come back from the course, and attendees are encouraged to purchase raffle tickets for a bevvy of prizes.

We have something for everyone, and encourage golfers of all levels to take part in the festivities. Organized as a four-person scramble, golfers are allowed to form their own foursomes, and with the assistance of Langdon Farms staff, we can even help match up golfers in order to help them get to know fellow players.

We are incredibly proud that the Chip! For Teeth Golf Tournament and raffle proceeds go toward helping us fulfill our mission to advance oral health education, provide charitable care, and coordinate resources for Oregon’s children and vulnerable communities.

Won’t you join us and become part of this incredible legacy?
