Delta Dental gives PDS foundation $100K grant

Delta Dental of Arizona is giving $100,000 to Pacific Dental Services Foundation Dentists for Special Needs, a sensory-integrated nonprofit dental practice in Phoenix, reports The Glendale Star.

The grant will be split into two payments of $50,000 per year and will go to supporting patient care, including providing financial assistance for uninsured individuals.

The Pacific Dental Services Foundation Dentists for Special Needs supports patients with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities. The clinic is wheelchair accessible and has sensory integrated operatories with televisions on the ceiling, doors for privacy, and a unique operatory with two chairs to provide space for others.

David Jourabchi, DDS, is the practicing dentist at the clinic.

Founded in 2019, the Pacific Dental Services Foundation Dentists for Special Needs focuses on improving access to oral care for disadvantaged and underserved communities via its four main programs: special needs dentistry, dental assistant scholarships, international service trips and mobile dental clinics.
