Wellness + Recovery: DWBF is part of the MDA family.

Dental Well Being Foundation + Voluntary Wellness Program 

Working Together to Improve Lives


The MDA Mission Statement is “Helping All Members Succeed.” Experiencing wellness is a key part of this success, as is recovering from substance abuse and mental health issues.


Dental Well Being Foundation

To help augment funding so the MDA could better serve its members, the Dental Well Being Foundation was founded in 2010 as a 501(c)3 charitable foundation of the MDA.


The hope is that through increased awareness and education provided by the Foundation, impaired and troubled providers can be identified, seek help earlier and, perhaps, voluntarily enroll in the Well Being Program before any disciplinary action is taken.


In 2014 the Dental Well Being Foundation enhanced its mission to focus on wellness while still providing proven assistance with recovery and treatment issues. The Foundation has created this website to be a central hub where education and resources can be shared that addresses the wellness needs of providers, their staff and families.

Resources may range from weight loss and nutrition, to ergonomics, to stress management and counseling services. Augmenting these resources will be events and exposure opportunities that make wellness a desired benefit of MDA membership. We welcome your input to make this site beneficial to you.
