Grants to Oklahoma nonprofits, educational institutions, and government agencies for programs and services 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.

Funding Criteria - Dental Health and Education Related Programs Funded:
- 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
- Public Education: Programs that educate children and adults in dental self-care to improve oral health and establish life-long habits
- Professional Education: Programs that prepare the next generation of dental professionals, address dental professional shortage areas, and advance dentistry
- Oral Health-Related Research
- Support Programs: Initiatives that advance or support core objectives

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.

Preferred Service Model:
- Free clinic or program (no charge to patients).
- Specific patient qualifications are stated and proof is required.
- Volunteer dental professionals donate time and service (either in their private offices or in the grantee organization’s facility or event).
- 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 which average 20% or more below Delta Dental PPO reimbursement rates.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility Requirements:
- Grant-seeking organization must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with public charity status, an educational institution or a government agency. Grants are not awarded to individuals.
- Only dental health and education-related projects, programs, and initiatives will be funded.
- Program/project must serve Oklahomans.
- Program/project must not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or religion.

In fairness to the many volunteer dental professionals, as a general rule grant funds should not be used to compensate dental professionals for their time or services. Exceptions may be made under certain circumstances but must be expressly reviewed and permitted by Foundation Board decision.

The Foundation does not provide funding for the building, expansion, or operation of dental clinics administered by Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs).
