Open Wide Foundation
The Open Wide Foundation is a nonprofit on a mission to bring lasting change to the state of oral health in underserved communities worldwide. Open Wide establishes clinics in places where previously no access was available and provides resources to local dentists providing services to the local community.
Modern equipment and supplies are donated by our industry partners and individual donors, making it possible to provide preventive and restorative care where none existed before. After five years, the community takes over all aspects of a model clinic, leaving a legacy of continuing care and improved health for the people of the community for generations to come.
“When corporations are truly socially responsible, as is the case with Spear Education, they do more than just write a check. They align their values with organizations that work to improve the community in which they work and live. Financial support, creating employee awareness and partnering with us on volunteer projects are all ways in which Spear exemplifies social responsibility in the greater Phoenix area and helps Esperança improve the health outcomes of the families we serve.”
– Jeri Royce, President and CEO of Esperança
