The Haven recently received a $30,000 grant from Northeast Delta Dental to help provide everything from routine dental care to surgical procedures for people with whom we work. This funding is not just helping individuals with critical oral health issues, it is giving the Haven leverage to acquire additional funding and negotiate discounts with providers.
In the past year, the Community Health Needs Assessments conducted in the areas surrounding the Haven identified oral health care as one of the top unmet needs everywhere. People with damaged or missing teeth have a harder time gaining employment; people with gum and tooth infections risk serious medical complications and more extensive health care.
We are honored that Northeast Delta Dental sees the Haven as a place that can partner with others in the community to use this grant to the best advantage for as many people as possible.
