Kids in Need of Dentistry (KIND), the oldest dental charity in Colorado, provides low-cost, high quality dental care to children in need and accepts patients, ages 18 and under, with Medicaid, CHP+, or no insurance. At KIND, no patient is turned away due to inability to pay.
Founded by a group of dentists in 1912 to serve children of low-income coal miners and railroad workers, today KIND serves over 8,000 children across Colorado providing over $1,000,000 annually in dental treatment through the work of both staff and volunteers.
As Colorado’s population continues to experience rapid growth, so does the demand for KIND’s programs, which include:
- Four oral healthcare centers across the state
- Chopper Topper: A school-based mobile dental hygiene and sealant program, serving over 100 underserved schools annually
- Community Outreach in collaboration with local health fairs, schools, non-profits, and community health partners.
KIND relies heavily on volunteers and community support in order to fulfill its mission: to increase the health and happiness of Colorado children in need through dental treatment and education.
