Tooth decay is nearly 100% preventable, yet it is the most common childhood chronic disease. Thankfully, organizations across the islands are working to combat dental disease in children, families and underserved populations.
The HDS Foundation was established in 1986 by Hawaii Dental Service to improve the oral health of Hawaii’s communities. Grants are distributed twice a year to local non-profit organizations for programs and projects that provide oral health education, prevent oral disease, and increase access to dental care for underserved populations. In 2014, the HDS Foundation made grants to nonprofit organizations totaling nearly $650,000.
We invite your organization to submit a dental health-related proposal now until August 1, 2015.
