More than a Foundation

On September 1, 1991, Dr. A Howard McLaughlin had the ambition to infuse the state of Connecticut’s dental community with a sense of purpose and charity. That mission continues 30 years later as the Connecticut State Dental Foundation (CSDF) helps set a new standard for oral care.

All of the efforts of CSDF are only possible through the leadership and generosity of many individuals, dental professionals, and corporations who have supported the foundation over the years.
