FirstHealth Dental Care Receives 'Smiles for a Lifetime' Grant

FirstHealth Dental Care has received a “Smiles for a Lifetime” grant from the International College of Dentists that will help more than 2,500 children who are underserved.

The $5,000 grant will support FirstHealth Dental Care in its mission to provide quality care to children in Moore and Montgomery counties. It will pay for fluoride varnish and other supplies used in preventive appointments.

“We strive each day to provide quality health care to children who otherwise would not receive it,” said Paul Hood, DDS, interim director of FirstHealth Dental. “Community support from organizations like the International College of Dentists is vital in helping us improve the oral health of the communities we serve, and we are incredibly grateful to receive this grant.”

The dentists and staff at FirstHealth Dental provide care for children from birth to 21 years of age who receive Medicaid, Health Choice, or are uninsured and qualify by income level.

Since 1998, the program has provided dental care to more than 30,000 underserved children in Moore and Montgomery counties.
