The ACDQ actively supports the following humanitarian initiatives:
Les Auberges du cœur
Dentistes Sans Frontières
Since 1999, the ACDQ has teamed up with Dentistes Sans Frontières to provide dental care to poor communities in developing countries and enable project volunteers to experience international cooperation.
Dentistes sans frontières projects require volunteers who will donate their time and expertise on location, while local partners recruit the patients and provide the work site.

Street Youth Dental Clinic
The ACDQ provides financial support to the Street Youth Dental Clinic that is attached to the CSSS Jeanne-Mance, whose purpose is to provide dental care to young people living on the street.
Students from the Université de Montréal, under the direction of Dr. Denys Ruel, developed this project, which has so far provided treatments to more than 1,000 young people.
This highly commendable initiative has been frequently praised by the Government of Quebec, the Canadian Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
