The CDA supports Colorado dental charities and nonprofit 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.).
There are four Community Health Centers that are designated as sites where refugees can receive an initial medical screening, health education, case management, and navigation to care. Those sites are:
- Clinica Family Health
- Denver Health’s Community Health Services
- Peak Vista Community Health Centers
- STRIDE Community Health Center
