Dental Aid’s mission is to improve the quality of life of children and adults
struggling to afford health care by providing compassionate, affordable,
high quality dental care and education, while advocating to ensure access to care.
Founded in 1974, Dental Aid was the first not-for-profit comprehensive dental clinic in the United States. Thirty-nine years later, in 2013, Dental Aid provided more than 8,000 children and adults with affordable, high-quality, comprehensive dental care. Here at Dental Aid, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to live free from oral pain and disease and to have healthy teeth and gums. Financial status should not limit anyone from receiving high quality oral health care. In addition, we believe that through education and early intervention we can lower oral disease, reduce the cost of health care and make a lasting impact on the lives of current and future generations.
