For Grant Seekers

The mission of the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation is to improve the oral health of all Oklahomans by funding and facilitating dental related programs. Based on that mission, we award grants to organizations in four areas:  benevolent dentistry/access to dental care, oral health education for the public, education for dental professionals, and oral health related research.
