Who We Are

Arcora Foundation (formerly Washington Dental Service Foundation) is a nonprofit dedicated to improving oral health and health equity by partnering with communities to prevent oral disease, transform health systems, and increase access to care.

Founded and funded by nonprofit Delta Dental of Washington, the state’s largest dental benefits company, we help achieve a shared vision:  All people enjoy good oral and overall health, with nobody left behind. 

We work with partners throughout the state and across the country to create significant and lasting changes that prevent disease, improve access to care, and transform health systems. 

Equity drives our work. We aim to reduce health disparities so everyone benefits from good oral health and overall health.

With a dedicated board and talented staff we blend innovation with practical solutions, and strive to make permanent changes resulting in improved health for all, which increases well-being and saves money for families, businesses and taxpayers.
