    Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation Impact Report

    As a not-for-profit dental benefits company, Delta Dental of Oklahoma’s mission is to improve the oral health of all Oklahomans. Through the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation, we invest in programs committed to oral health education and access to dental care throughout the state.

    In 2020, DDOK Foundation awarded $1,212,850 in grants to clinics and programs that provide free dental care to underserved and vulnerable populations. This funding allowed nearly 5,200 patients to receive dental care that would otherwise not be accessible.

    DDOK Foundation launched the new COVID-19 Pandemic Dental Emergency Response Program in 2020 to divert dental patients from hospital emergency departments during the pandemic. Our Dental Care Navigators helped connect patients to the best resources for their needs. Our Dental Emergency Fund covered the costs required to help more than 500 qualifying, low-income patients access to treatment valued at nearly $210,000.
