Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Invites Applications for 2015 Access to Care Grants

Matching grants of up to $20,000 each will be awarded to support community-based initiatives that provide dental care to underserved children.

Funds may be applied to cover costs of clinic supplies and instruments, patient/parent education materials, take-home supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.), education and/or outreach to recruit dentist participation in program activities, and/or other activity with clear, direct impact on pediatric oral health care.

To be eligible, applicants must be a United States-based nonprofit organization or local government agency that provides dental services to children in the U.S. or its territories. Projects should have pediatric dentist involvement. If a pediatric dentist is not participating, a general dentist must be involved for funding consideration.
