Orthodontics Program

The need for affordable orthodontic care for children of low income families is remarkable and often unattainable.KIND is proud to partner with Orthodontist, Dr. Joseph Dankey, as well as, Colorado Orthodontic Foundation (COF) to provide this much needed orthodontic care. For more than 20 years, Orthodontist, Dr. Joseph Dankey, has volunteered in KIND’s Commerce City Clinic, providing orthodontic treatment to our patients. In 2004 Dr. Dankey was influential in creating KIND’s first Orthodontic Advisory Committee which reviewed patient orthodontic cases and encouraged other orthodontists to become involved with KIND by donating their services.

In 2009, KIND and the Colorado Orthodontic Foundation (COF) created a partnership that would enable more of our patients to receive orthodontic care in our clinics. COF’s volunteer Orthodontists provide care in the Commerce City Clinic as well as in their own individual private practice clinics. In 2013, COF expanded their program to our new Colorado Springs Clinic.
