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, Indiana, and Ohio.  APPLY HERE 


The Delta Dental Foundation develops and enhances partnerships and programs to improve oral and overall health. Each year the Delta Dental Foundation provides financial support through grants to various organizations.
