Foundation for Dental Innovation is offering to fund Innovative Oral Health projects around the world.

FDI is now accepting applications for the World Dental Development Fund (WDDF), supporting innovative oral health initiatives in communities all around the world. The fund backs projects with clear objectives to promote and improve oral health and prevent oral diseases in limited-income areas with oral health needs. FDI seeks projects that are designed to benefit individuals and communities with demonstrated oral health needs. Projects should complement local, regional or national strategic health aims within the country; they should also be developed in consultation with local authorities and stakeholders.

FDI will give priority to projects with a prominent educational component and promising potential for long-term sustainability. Projects should focus on at least one of the following topics:

  • disease prevention and/or eradication
  • education
  • oral health promotion
  • primary health care

FDI is an international, membership-based organization that serves as the main representative body for more than 1 million dentists worldwide, active in some 200 National Dental Associations (NDAs) and specialist groups in close to 130 countries. Founded in 1900, FDI is a pioneer in the field of modern dentistry.

As a convener of the oral health community, FDI fosters exchange and develops a common vision to advance the science and practice of dentistry. FDI delivers innovative congresses, campaigns, and projects to address the global oral disease burden and improve oral health. As the leading global advocate for oral health, FDI strives to achieve our vision of leading the world to optimal oral health by working at both the national and international level.

FDI is committed to representing the interests of member NDAs globally to help support their national efforts to raise awareness of oral health. FDI transforms this commitment into action through active engagement with the World Health Organization, as well as other United Nations agencies, health organizations, governments, and global partners to ensure that oral health is recognized as an essential component of general health and well-being.
