Too many children in Oregon are living with untreated, but entirely preventable,
cavities and tooth decay. There are also regions and communities of Oregon where
kids are disproportionately affected by poor dental health.
Yet we now know more than ever that healthy teeth help set the stage for lifelong health and opportunity.
Working with school districts, community-based nonprofits and healthcare organizations,
we can improve children's dental health.
The Oregon Community Foundation, Northwest Health Foundation, Kaiser Permanente
and other funding partners are pleased to offer two funding opportunities to do
just that. These funding opportunities represent one of Northwest Health Foundation's
Regional Improvements, a program in our Healthy Beginnings+Healthy Communities
