Our Work

As an organization geared towards solutions, we’ve worked to identify the root causes of oral health inequality across the state to prioritize our grantmaking around: prevention, access to oral health care, and workforce development.

Together, our efforts and the work of our community partners create a more equitable oral health care landscape for Coloradans.

What We Do

Mission-related investments designed to fund oral health–related capital needs of community-based dental providers, services, and clinics.
Grants
With our partner organizations, we implement innovative programs and projects intended to reach those with the most to gain.
Toothbrush Donations
Providing in-kind toothbrush donations to nonprofits serving the Colorado community.
Advocacy
Supporting public policies that advance oral health equity.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Delta Dental of Colorado is committed to being the most socially responsible company in the state of Colorado.
