THE MISSION OF BRIGHTER WAY

Our mission is to be a leader in providing outstanding dental care and other care management, transforming health homes and training future health professionals for the care of vulnerable children, adults, and families.

OUR VISION

Our goal is for vulnerable families and communities to have compassionate and quality health homes receiving outstanding care for the "whole person" and "whole family".

HELPING THE VULNERABLE

The Brighter Way Institute was founded on one core vision: to provide the best pediatric and adult dental care services to all, with a special emphasis on helping the most vulnerable among our society. As a non-profit health organization, we accept all AHCCCS plans and private insurance, allowing us to care for patients who are underinsured or not insured at all. Using this pay-it-forward model, we deliver high-quality, compassionate care, regardless of legal or financial status, making dental health care more patient-centered, reliable, accessible and safe.

But we don’t stop there. Beyond reducing the cost and improving the quality of care, our team is out in the community serving through school-based portable dentistry, public dental education and strategic partnerships with local dentists, pediatricians, nonprofit agencies and like-minded groups. At Brighter Way, we are committed to advancing scientific knowledge and training the next generation of dentists. Our residency program with NYU/Lutheran of Brooklyn, trains 2 AEGD residents in all aspects of general dentistry and all specialties. We have  4th year students from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health rotating throughout the year at both our adult and pediatric centers. 

As a beacon of hope to those facing challenges of every kind, we are committed to lifting people up and lighting their way to a healthier, happier and more prosperous future.
