Delta Dental grant increases access to specialty dental care

The Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation (DDCOF) awarded a $79,544 grant to the Health District to address barriers community members face in accessing specialty dental care and dental care under general anesthesia for the next three years.

The Health District’s Family Dental Clinic provides general dentistry and often encounters patients with severe oral health conditions requiring specialty dental care, such as oral surgery, and refers those patients to community-based providers.

Funding from DDCOF will support collaboration for the next three years between the Health District and specialty dental providers in our community to reduce the financial barriers patients face in accessing the care they need to stabilize their oral health.
