COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund  

The Delta Dental Foundation focuses on funding oral health related projects; in this time of change and crisis, we realize our safety-net dental clinics and our non-profit organizations are being asked to do more than ever before.

The Delta Dental Foundation has created a COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund.  Funds will address needs faced by both safety-net dental clinics and non-profits who work with vulnerable populations and provide health services or food assistance in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. The application period has now closed, recipients have been notified.
