Northeast Delta Dental Foundation supports access to oral health care

Portsmouth and Somersworth – The Northeast Delta Dental Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 grant to support access to dental care at Families First Health & Support Center in Portsmouth and Goodwin Community Health in Somersworth. The Foundation has been supporting these programs since 2003.

Both dental centers provide preventive, restorative and emergency dental care within community health centers where patients also have access to medical and behavioral health care and family services. Patients who don’t have dental insurance and meet income-eligibility guidelines are offered a sliding-fee discount. The centers project serving 3,800 Seacoast residents this year.

“In New Hampshire, there is no adult Medicaid benefit for dental care other than emergency extractions,” said Janet Laatsch, CEO of Greater Seacoast Community Health, which operates both dental centers. “This grant from Northeast Delta Dental’s Foundation will help us make sure that adults who have Medicaid coverage and others who lack dental insurance can get the preventive and restorative oral health care that is so important to their overall health and employability.”

“Our Foundation’s mission is to increase access to and the quality of oral health care for all,” explained Jennifer McGrath, Manager, Foundation & Marketing Initiatives. “We are proud to partner with Greater Seacoars Community Health to provide those in need with expanded dental services.”
