You’re changing lives across Oklahoma every day! Disaster Grants ProgramRead how you’ve transformed them…

"We had a gentleman that had been in pain for three weeks and when he left he had a look of peace. There are 10 folks just like that everytime [you visit]."

- Marcus, Baptist Mission, OKC

"The patient population served are those most vulernable in our city. The care they received was desperately needed. Many were in pain and some need just enough help to maintain or gain employment."

- John, The Vine Church, OKC 

"The individuals served would not have visited a dental office. They do not have the resources available and dental is low on their list of priorities."

- Royce, KI BOIS Community Action Foundation., Stigler

"I always feel that the benefit far exceeds the financial and human capital cost involved in bringing the mobile unit to our facility."

  • Kathleen, Central Oklahoma Community Mental Health Center, Norman

    "I think it's a testament to the appreciated treatment when elementary aged patients ask me to tell the dentist 'thank you' because they forgot to!"

    - Denice, Major County SoonerSUCCESS
