Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

During the past 18 months, we have hired two new full-time dentists who are certified by the Georgia Board of Dentistry to provide intravenous conscious sedation. This has allowed us to increase the number of patients we are able to serve each week. We were already well past (double) the life expectancy of our dental treatment chairs and x-ray units, but they were still working fine, so we had no immediate plans to replace them. Since recently increasing the daily usage, the wear and tear on our chairs and x-ray units has escalated. It is now time to replace them in order to maximize our capacity to serve our patients. Dental treatment chairs are a necessary part of providing dental care. Without properly functioning dental chairs, we cannot operate. Our dental chairs and x-ray machines were purchased in 2002 when we opened the doors to our new clinic. They are now more than 17 years old (twice the typical life expectancy) and are worn out and not functioning optimally.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The DDD Foundation, Inc. strives to offer accessible, comprehensive dental treatment to patients with developmental disabilities.

Our dental staff is specially trained to provide dental care to patients with developmental disabilities. We use the latest digital x-ray technology to detect cavities and oral disease early, and we provide a caring and accepting atmosphere for our patients.

The DDD Foundation's dental clinic currently has two full time dentists, an oral surgeon and a dental team of hygienists and dental assistants specially trained to work with patients with developmental disabilities, and an anesthesiologist. Fewer than five percent of dentists in the U.S. have the training necessary to deal with patients with developmental disabilities. Both our dentists received their Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry. Founder and CEO Dr. Deidra Rondeno completed her General Practice Residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and Dr. Willie T. Oliver completed his General Practice Residency at Ohio State University. Both programs are among the top programs in the United States providing specific training for treating patients with developmental disabilities. Oral surgeon Kael Rogers, DDS, MD, completed a combined oral and maxillofacial surgery certificate/MD integrated program at Emory University School of Medicine.

Patient demographics, prevention of oral caries and diseases of the mouth, patient adherence to a dental treatment plan

The DDD Foundation tracks patient demographics such as age, race, sex, county, and disability. We track growth and attrition rates. Since our inception we have grown to serve more than 4,500 active patients from 89 Georgia counties and surrounding states.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
