Grants of up to $20,000 to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, hospitals and clinics, dentistry colleges and schools, medical colleges and schools (family medicine and pediatric departments), health departments and jurisdictions, and dental societies to provide dental health care to disadvantaged children. Funding is intended to support community-based, dentist-lead projects and expenses such as education and outreach, child oral health care, clinical supplies, equipment, and salary.

The AAPD Foundation is committed to supporting community-based initiatives providing Dental Homes to children whose families cannot afford dental care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a Dental Home as the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care, delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way. One way Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children (HSHC) supports this goal is through Access to Care Grants in support of care for children up to age 18.

All expense items must have a clear, direct impact on pediatric oral health care and a direct link to the Dental Home.

While the Foundation welcomes submissions from qualified applicants that meet the requirements (below), special consideration will be given to initiatives

  • Supporting the age-one dental visit
  • Emphasizing care to patients 0 to 5
  • Addressing the needs of specific underserved demographic groups
  • Incorporating systemic health, i.e. diabetes, cancer, etc.
