Grants to Oklahoma nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies for programs that promote oral health and advance dental education. Funding is intended to make dental care accessible to populations who would not otherwise have access to dental services.

Dental Health and Education Related Programs Funded:

  1. Benevolent Dentistry and Access to Care: Clinics, programs, projects, and events that provide dental care and education to those unable to access the care they need due to financial, physical, or geographical barriers
  2. Public Education: Programs that educate children and adults in dental self-care to improve oral health and establish life-long habits
  3. Professional Education: Programs that prepare the next generation of dental professionals, address dental professional shortage areas, and advance dentistry
  4. Support Programs: Initiatives that advance or support core objectives

Preferred Service Model:

The Foundation seeks to support, encourage, and advance the volunteer service of dental professionals. Therefore, funding decisions give priority to programs utilizing the following Preferred Service Model.
  1. Free clinic or program (no charge to patients).
  2. Specific patient qualifications are stated and proof is required.
  3. Volunteer dental professionals donate time and service (either in their private offices or in the grantee organization’s facility or event).
  4. Grant funds cover negotiated hard costs (such as labs, anesthesia, supplies, and materials).

Though priority is given to free clinics, on occasion the Foundation may choose to fund nonprofit, lowcost clinics which provide services to low-income, at-risk, uninsured/underinsured populations at fees deemed by the Foundation as “low-cost.”

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility Requirements: 4-Point Test
1. The organization seeking the grant must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with public charity status, an educational institution, a government agency, or a faith-based organization that serves all members of the community regardless of religious belief. Grants are not awarded to individuals.
2. The program, project or initiative being funded must be dental health or education related.
3. The program cannot discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion.
