The Colorado Dental Association supports Colorado dental charities and non-profit dental clinics throughout the state. These organizations offer dental care on a sliding fee scale to individuals who are unable to afford treatment. Several of these organizations have financial and residency requirements. Others are established to help a certain portion of the population (i.e. children, the homeless, people with disabilities, etc.).
In addition, the CDA supports charitable dental programs to help both children and adults. Colorado dental professionals are constantly giving back to their communities and have given millions of dollars in donated dental services through these charitable programs.
Give Kids a Smile Day is a day of free dental treatment and education for kids. This program takes place on the first Friday of February each year. Dental volunteers from across Colorado donate their time to help children without dental insurance or income to afford dental care. Children must have an appointment in advance to receive free care.
