Foundation supports the Concord Hospital Family Health Center Dental Clinic as a Benefactor Circle

6/21/2018

The Northeast Delta Dental Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 grant to Concord Hospital as part of its ongoing commitment to help address oral health access issues.  As part of the Benefactors Circle, Northeast Delta Dental has made a significant investment to foster a partnership which strengthens the Hospital’s services and programs.

This gift helps Concord Hospital Family Health Center Dental Clinic purchase needed dental and denture supplies. The Dental Clinic provides a full range of dental care for teens and adults that are low-income, uninsured or Medicaid insured and cannot receive dental care in a private practice. In 2017, the Dental Clinic cared for 773 patients.

“The Northeast Delta Dental Foundation has been awarding grants to oral health programs in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont since 1995. There are so many compelling linkages between oral health and overall wellness that we appreciate the opportunity to support Concord Hospital as they work hard to make our community healthier,” said Kathleen Walker, the Foundation’s Treasurer.

Northeast Delta Dental administers dental benefits to more than 876,000 people in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, offering dental insurance programs for organizations of all sizes and individuals and families with no access to employer-sponsored dental benefits.

“Since 1999, Northeast Delta Dental has provided support to the Family Health Center Dental Clinic in order to help sustain its mission to improve the oral health of low-income teens and adults in the Concord region,” said Robert P. Steigmeyer, Concord Hospital President/CEO. “In today’s challenging healthcare climate we are grateful to organizations that understand the value of quality health care to all regardless of the ability to pay.”
