Kids in Need of Dentistry (KIND) is a non-profit organization that serves children across the state of Colorado with low-cost, high-quality dental treatment and education.

We believe:

  1. Every child has the right to a healthy smile and body, and these two things integrally related to one another.
  2. Preventative oral health habits positively impact a child’s overall health, ability to thrive, and in a broader sense, change the trajectory of their lives.
  3. Improving access to and perceptions of oral health will increase health equity, and improve the future landscape of healthcare in Colorado.

We are a scrappy team of health-equity warriors most concerned with increasing access to judgment-free, positive oral health experiences, treatment, and education with kindness, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.

Kids In Need of Dentistry relies heavily on in-kind donations and gifts.

Whether you can contribute $10 or $5000, your contribution to KIND makes a real difference. Regardless of the amount, KIND devotes all contributions toward providing quality dental care for Colorado’s children in need.

  • $10 you can help purchase 5 toothbrushes
  • $25 you can provide oral hygiene preventive counseling and an oral hygiene care bag
  • $50 you can pay for a child’s exam, x-rays, cleaning, and fluoride treatment
  • $100 you will be providing a new patient exam, x-rays, a cleaning with preventive counseling, a fluoride treatment, and 4 preventive sealants
  • $500 you could help a child who needs 4 composite fillings and 1 root canal and crown

Most charitable donations are tax-deductible. KIND encourages donors and supporters to consult a tax professional to learn more about the tax advantages of donations, planned gifts, and in-kind donations.
