Providing access to quality care for all communities

Our community partner resources help protect oral health by providing dental care for people who would not otherwise be able to obtain that care. Our Guardians of the Smile partnerships with the Children’s Health Fund as a lead oral health sponsor and with Dental Lifeline Network as a lead sponsor of their Donated Dental Services program, have delivered results including providing:

  • $7M plus in donated dental services to medically-fragile and elderly patients who could not otherwise afford dental services
  • 30,000 plus children with access to dental services with a primary dentist and preventative treatments to assure positive oral health
  • Children’s oral health lessons to 5,000 classrooms and 126,000 K-3 students
