Foundation Strategic Goals

The Delta Dental of Iowa Foundation's  long-term, strategic direction focuses funding primarily to programs and investments that help support two visionary oral health 2020 goals, which include:

  1. Every Iowa child age 0-12, living in a household with an income below 300 percent of the federal poverty level, will be cavity-free.
  2. Every Iowa nursing home resident and homebound elderly person will have access to oral health care.

The Foundation's funding supports these goals by focusing on these four critical areas:

  • Oral health education and prevention
  • Fluoridation
  • Access to care for underserved children
  • Access to care for the homebound elderly and nursing home residents
