Grantee Spotlight: Community Dental Care

January 21st, 2018




Since 2011, Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation has awarded over $1.4 million to Community Dental Care – a nonprofit organization which primarily serves the low-income population in their service areas of Saint Paul, Maplewood, Robbinsdale and Rochester.

Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation recently awarded a $1 million grant to Community Dental Care to support the creation of their second clinic in Rochester. The new Rochester clinic is estimated to increase access to dental care for 10,000-35,000 patient encounters annually. The clinic will also provide workforce opportunities to approximately 20 dental professionals, including dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists and dental assistants and 10 staff positions.

In addition to the clinic, the foundation has supported sever of Community Dental Care’s programs – including Minnesota Cavity Free Kids and the Program to Improve Community Oral Health.

Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation is thrilled to partner with outstanding organizations like Community Dental Care, which continue to make a difference in the communities they serve. To learn more about Community Dental Care visit: CDentC.org.
