Programs + Partnerships
The DentaQuest Foundation is committed to improving the systems that promote optimal oral health. Through our philanthropic investments, we support initiatives at the national, state and local levels that are driving change. We are driven by a vision of a country in which everyone has the knowledge, support, and resources to attain optimal oral health. We are guided by a theory of change that informs the strategies we employ to achieve the outcomes that will move us toward realizing this vision. Our investments are strategic and multi-layered and directed at the systems that provide and fund care, enhance public policy, and help communities build and navigate available resources.
As we approach 2020, we are intentionally focused on supporting our existing grantees and the Oral Health Progress and Equity Network (OPEN) to reach the goals and targets laid out in our Oral Health 2020 strategy to improve the oral health of all, and have limited grant funding available for new projects. However, we continue to welcome new concepts and ongoing conversations about innovative ways to advance oral health systems change.
