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!

    It's a small world when it comes to our second graders!
    Little Rikki participated in our Chopper Topper program at her school last year. Lisa and Amy saw her again at the 9Health Fair at Barnum Recreation Center. Good to know that all of her sealants looked great!!

    Reaching out to families in our community is a true calling to those of us at KIND. Today our Hygienists, Lisa and Amy, provided oral health screenings at a 9HealthFair at Barnum Recreation Center in Denver. Thank you ladies for your service!

    How does a kid get a bicycle from KIND's Chopper Topper Program? First they need to have their teeth checked by the Chopper Topper Hygienist and possibly have sealants placed. Then if 90% or more of the 2nd grade class participates in the program we have a drawing of all the 2nd graders. The winner gets the bike and a helmet!
    Here we see Mayte from Godsman Elementary School in Denver was the lucky winner!
    These bicycles are graciously refurbished and donated to KIND for this program by Bruce and the Bicycle Recycle Program at the Bicycle Village Westminster and the Bicycle Village Littleton.
