Oral health has been a funding priority for the REACH Foundation since our inception.
Since 2005, the REACH Foundation has funded more than two dozen oral health programs serving thousands of children, adolescents and adults.
The Foundation funds oral health services through safety net clinics, stand-alone dental clinics, school-based dental programs and teledentistry, dental sealant delivery programs that provide sealants to underserved children, and coordinated case management and referral programs.
Other interests include oral health policy development and coalition building aimed at increasing access to oral health services, consumer engagement, advancing expanded scope of practice, and enhancing Medicaid reimbursement and benefits.
REACH also supports statewide and regional advocacy activities that promote access to oral health services and local projects to address access issues in rural areas.
Note: For examples of the Foundation’s oral health funding, go to the Grants Database and review grants under Oral Health.
