The DentaQuest Foundation is committed to investments that improve and strengthen the systems that improve oral health. We are guided by a vision of oral health systems that support a community where everyone has ready access to the knowledge, support, and resources to attain optimal oral health. Theories of change that move us toward achieving that vision inform the investment and partnership strategies that we make available.
Oral Health 2020 is a multi-year effort that is engaging grantees and partners to strengthen and unify an oral health network aligned to improve oral health by building upon current initiative strategies and expanding impact. Oral Health 2020 goals are inspirational, with specific targets to be achieved by 2020.
The Community Response Fund provides support to address acute, short-term care delivery problems that community-based care providers may face as they work to improve oral health for underserved populations.
President’s Fund investments support convenings and activities that are aligned with the priorities of the Foundation President. Fund investments currently focus on reducing oral health disparities, promoting community involvement, and fostering youth leadership.
