New Grant from Delta Dental

We are pleased to announce that the Delta Dental Foundation recently awarded Hope Dental Clinic a $4,000 grant.  The grant will cover fees and supplies for our onsite prosthodontics lab.    This will allow us to makes full dentures, partial dentures, and temporary partial dentures (flippers) for free for our patients.

“Adults miss 164 million hours of work each year because of dental issues,” said Teri Battaglieri, Delta Dental Foundation director. “By funding Hope Dental Clinic’s prosthodontics lab, we can help increase access to high-quality dental care for more underserved adults, so they can continue to show up for work pain free and avoid serious, painful and expensive health issues down the road.”

The Delta Dental Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization established in 1980, which serves as the philanthropic arm of Delta Dental of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina. The foundation’s goals are to support education and research for the advancement of dental science, and to promote the oral health of the public through education and service activities, particularly for those with special needs.
