Do you provide dental care to children whose families cannot afford it? If yes, apply for a Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Grant.

HSHC Grants are Single-Year grants of up to $20,000, supporting community-based initiatives in the U.S. that provide dental care and ultimately serve as a Dental Home to underserved/limited access children.

Our 2017-2018 Access to Care Grant Cycle will open on Friday, October 21, 2016.
