Dr. Dan Fischer, CEO and founder of Ultradent founded the company's non-profit organization with a mission of strengthening and aligning global communities by empowering vulnerable and underprivilaged children through education. Having grown up in a third-generation polygamous sect, the The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS), Dr. Fischer left the sect in the early 1990's, and later, saw an influx of teens and young adults being kicked or discouraged out of the group-- left to fend for themselves with little education and zero connection to the outside world. The Diversity Foundation aims to help these young people integrate into society--mostly through mentoring and education-- as well as to help prevent crimes by encouraging diversity and awareness among people of all backgrounds and walks of life. Here is a recent Diversity Foundation success story: When Brenda Nicholson, her husband, and her six children left the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) church in 2012, not only did they have no income and nowhere to go, but they also had hardly any resources to help them integrate into society. After years of isolation in the Shortcreek area of Utah and Arizona—a hub of the FLDS community—Brenda's husband didn't even know how to write re'sume' to obtain a job, and none of the members of their family had obtained anything more than a high school education.
