Healthy Connections, a local non-profit organization that provides health and dental care services, has been awarded $22,405 from Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation for the purchase of needed dental equipment, which will aid the non-profit’s efforts to provide access to dental care to patients in Polk County.
“Oral disease is almost entirely preventable and curable,” Barbara Klutts, Healthy Connections marketing liaison, said. “By investing in dental education, prevention and treatment, we are ensuring a better future for all.”
The Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation, the 501c3 nonprofit arm of Delta Dental, has given an average of $3 million in each of the last three years to support organizations, programs and initiatives designed to improve access to better oral care services for individuals and families, including free and low cost dental clinics, community water fluoridation, school-based dental services, oral health education programs and senate school scholarships and loan repayment programs.
