These are the groups that make what we do at Children's Dental Center possible.
About The Health Trust A charitable foundation based in San Jose, The Health Trust’s mission is to lead the Silicon Valley community to advance wellness. The Health Trust was founded in 1996 from the sale of three local nonprofit hospitals. It primarily targets underserved communities in Santa Clara and northern San Benito counties through direct services, grants and advocacy. Its areas of concern include food access, aging, oral health, HIV/AIDS and management of chronic diseases. To address the oral health crisis in Santa Clara County, The Health Trust opened two Children’s Dental Centers in collaboration with Children’s Dental Group. The Health Trust also operates an oral health education program and is leading a community water fluoridation campaign.
The vision of The Health Trust is to make Silicon Valley the healthiest region in America for everyone, a place where all residents can achieve optimal health throughout their lifetime, no matter their background, income, race, ethnicity or age. The Health Trust believes that health care does not just take place in a doctor’s office, clinic or hospital. For everyone to achieve optimal health, the community itself must become a place that supports the health of all its residents.
