Elevating Coloradans’ Mile High Smile Power™
Oral health care is health care, and everyone should have access to it.
At Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation, we believe that a healthy mouth leads to a healthy life. Every day we partner with communities to re-imagine how all of our neighbors access, benefit from, and value the importance of oral health care.
What we do
We work alongside community partners so that every person can have a healthy mouth regardless of life circumstances. Our commitment is clear in our mission: to elevate the well-being of all Coloradans by advancing oral health equity.
We take a multifaceted approach to achieving oral health equity by investing in the areas that research and data tell us are most pressing: accessing oral health care, improving childhood and prenatal oral health care, and workforce development.
Find everything you need — data, education materials, and our press kit — to support oral health equity in your community.
It is well documented that health disparities are closely linked to race and ethnicity, income, geography, and age, and we work with community partners to impact change through grantmaking. New grant opportunity coming in 2024.
Learning from communities to increase oral health equity.
Health disparities are exacerbated when people lack access to oral health care. We work each day to increase everyone’s access by prioritizing and funding initiatives in areas that data and research show us need attention and will address root causes of oral health equity.
