Mission & Vision

In 1912 a group of Denver Dentists recognized a need for affordable dental services among children of low-income miners and railroad workers and decided to form a non-profit organization aimed at addressing that need. While much has changed in the over one hundred years since KIND began its first clinic in Denver Public Schools, KIND’s mission has not.Through KIND’s programs, staff, faithful volunteers and supporters, we continue to provide quality, comprehensive dental care and education to Colorado’s children in need.
