It’s Said That Charity Begins at Home
Our home – the state of Iowa – has over 3 million people. And not all of them have the same access to good oral health care. So we consider it our obligation to help level the playing field.
Through the Delta Dental of Iowa Public Benefit Program, we fund projects that promote oral health, advance the career of dentistry, provide care to those who might otherwise go without it, and so much more.
