Our Mission

Kids In Need of Dentistry (KIND) is a nonprofit organization that provides high-quality, affordable dental care to children in need throughout Colorado. Since 1912, KIND has helped thousands of children each year get the dental services they need at a cost their families can afford.

Kids in Need of Dentistry serves thousands of children every year throughout the state of Colorado, and we rely on charitable donation, planned gifts, and in-kind donations such as dental supplies to serve children who need care the most.

Get Involved

KIND has three clinics and many in-school programs to serve our patients conveniently. Dental care and education is our top priority.

KIND holds four main events per year to celebrate our supporters and raise money for our programs and clinics. Join us for our annual Golf Tournament in the summer, one of our two wine tastings in the spring and fall or the Gala each September.

KIND relies on private donations and giving to keep our programs and initiatives running and to help serve Colorado children in need.

KIND is always looking for volunteers. Whether you're a dentist that would like to spend a day in one of our clinics or a supporter that wants to give their time to helping with an event, we would love to hear from you!

    Little Kayla from Seacrest Elementary School had a good visit to the Chopper Topper Program in her school. It was her first visit to a dental chair and she got four new sealants!

    We are so fortunate to have wonderful staff who go the extra mile to promote our programs and nurture our partnerships. Sharon is our Clinic Coordinator in our Colorado Springs Clinic. She has developed a formative relationship with Motor Mouth Mobile Dental Hygiene, a preventitive dentistry program in the schools.
    Below is a glowing recommendation.

    To Whom It May Concern,
    It has been a true blessing to work with Sharon Fabrizius. She has been my constant support in overseeing the needs of high risk children within school district eleven. I have been so pleased with her attention to each child and their individual needs. She becomes familiar with each person’s story and specific treatment needs. Sharon offers her time and expertize generously. Sharon has become a mentor for me. I have improved my professional contacts and become more aware of resources available to help children in crisis because of her. The generosity of her experience and skill that she shares is spread to others that reminds me of how much community means for all of us. I am proud of the work Motor Mouth has accomplished this year and I owe so much of that to Sharon. She has done all that I could ask of her and more. I thought it was the least I could do to take one small moment to thank someone I owe so much. I look forward to a long a beneficial relationship with my new friend Sharon Fabrizius.

    Sincerely,

    Robin Cannello RDH
