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!

    We have the BEST Hygienists in our Chopper Topper sealant program! Our Hygienist, Amy, was at Meadow Point Elementary School and had the pleasure of seeing second grade twins, Xin and Ya. These little sisters spoke only Chinese so Amy resourcefully used a translator app on her phone to communicate with them. Both had a great Chopper Topper experience! ...

    "It wasn't bad at all. It was actually pretty fun!"
    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!
