Delta Dental of Arizona Donates Nearly $500,000 to Statewide Nonprofits

Jake Adams, chief development officer, and Lisa Olivas-Cook, grants manager, for Southwest Human Development receive a check for $20,000 from Delta Dental of Arizona CFO Mark Anderson for their Oral Health Program for Children, Families and Expectant Mothers.

Delta Dental of Arizona, through the charitable Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation, has been committed to expanding access to oral health education and preventive dental care, especially for children and expectant mothers. In 2017, we will provide nearly $500,000 in grants to 29 Arizona community groups serving high-risk children and families, pregnant mothers, dental health awareness programs and regional oral health coalitions.

With so much change and uncertainty in the healthcare right now, it is more important than ever for Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation to be a consistent resource to nonprofit organizations providing oral healthcare and educational resources to those who need it most. Increased attention on how a healthy mouth is directly correlated to overall health makes this work and the 29 organizations receiving funding of great importance as they make a significant impact for the oral care they need and deserve.

Grants ranging from $2,000 to $20,000 support a broad array of preventive services, including dental services for children, families and expectant mothers through Southwest Human Development’s Oral Health Program, which will serve over 8,000 individuals; a full-time dental hygienist embedded at Chiricahua Community Health Center for pediatric cases involving children who are uninsured or their families living at or below the poverty level in Douglas and Sierra Vista; a mobile health clinic providing cleanings and fluoride treatments for uninsured children in Tucson; and numerous programs servicing the underserved Native American population throughout the state.
