The Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation (DDAZF) Grant Program supports projects and services promoting good oral health practices and increasing access to dental care. It is the intention that this funding will:

  • Encourage and advance the integration of oral health and overall health
  • Increase access to oral health services to underserved children, pregnant women and seniors
  • Promote collaboration across a wide range of health providers in Arizona
  • Increase use of proven approaches into greater and more widespread practice

  • Initiation of dental sealant programs into existing oral health programs, particularly in counties where none exist
  • Previously funded organizations that have submitted complete and timely Interim and Final Reports

  • Sponsorship or attendance at conferences
  • Religious activities
  • Reduction of organizational debt
