How the AAID Foundation Makes a Difference

Since 1982, The AAID Foundation has expanded the science of oral implantology through research, education, and charitable programs. The Foundation supports students and researchers through our many research grants. In the past 5 years, the Foundation has provided over $650,000 in grants.

In 2015, the Foundation launched its first charitable program, Wish A Smile™. The program is designated to assist those with congenitally missing teeth. In 2019, the Foundation added its newest charitable program, Smile, Veteran!™ program that assists individuals, veterans, and families in accessing and receiving dental implant services from the AAID membership. 

This work would not have been possible without the support from AAID membership and corporate partners. Every contribution that is made has an impact on the future of communities where patients live, work, learn, and play. When you donate to the AAID Foundation, you are supporting community-based programs that impact those in need. 

Are your willing to help the Foundation in the support of our mission?

Bequest and Retirement Plan Donations

Gifts made through a donor’s will or trust are encouraged by The AAID Foundation. Attempts are made, whenever possible, to identify bequest expectancies in order to allow The AAID Foundation to recognize the donor for the gift during their lifetime.

The AAID Foundation will accept funds it receives as the beneficiary of a retirement plan (IRA, 401 (k) or 403 (b)). The AAID Foundation will encourage gifts that qualify as IRA Rollover Distributions when this giving vehicle is made possible by current legislation.

If you would like more information, please contact Barb Tieder, Foundation Director at 312-210-8703 or barb@aaid.com.

The future of implant dentistry will be built upon the commitments we make today.
