YOU are what making a difference looks like!

Thank you for knowing that we are all healthier when everyone in our community has access to quality dental care.

Last year, with support from people like YOU – Community Dental Care provided $1.5 million in charity dental care and preventive education. Together we reached more than 60,000 children and adults through in-clinic services and outreach.

Meet Jeremy, a smart and sweet 7-year-old. He came to us through our school-based dental program. Jeremy had so much pain he couldn’t concentrate in class. He was embarrassed to tell anyone about his pain. So, he sat off to the side at recess to keep from moving and causing more pain. The cause of Jeremy’s pain? Dental disease. 

When our dental hygienist asked him why he wasn’t brushing his teeth he said, “because it hurt too much.” The deep, dark brown cavities in his mouth were causing Jeremy excruciating pain.  Jeremy’ parents were not taking him to the dentist because they worried about paying for it. We meet children like Jeremy at schools, in our offices, and at community gatherings – where we say: We can help!

Community Dental Care is able to say YES to children and families who don’t know where to turn for help. Parents who wait until their own or their child’s pain is unbearable often end up in the emergency room. 

Does your contribution make a difference? ABSOLUTELY.   

Some people, like Jeremy and his family, have a hard time asking for support. We invite your support on their behalf.  Two donors made contributions of $250 that helped cover the costs of Jeremy’s exam, x-rays, and fillings. 

Your contribution makes YOU the stabilizing force in someone’s life who might be having excruciating pain and can’t afford to go to the dentist. We provide more than $1.5 million in charity care every year and, with your help, we are able to care for 60,000 people annually. 

We work hard to secure financial support in many ways: grants, fees, government funding and donations from generous people like you. 

$250 will help a child, like Jeremy. That’s less than $25 a month.

YOU make it possible for young children like Jeremy and others to receive dental care in a convenient, caring, and respectful environment. Thank you for your investment in making our community stronger and healthier.
