The Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation supports countless entities in New Jersey that provide access to dental care for seniors. We’ve learned in the nearly 30 years our Foundation has existed, just how important it is for seniors to have access to dental care – as good oral health can lead to good overall health.
Below are a few of the entities our Foundation is supporting in 2014:
Jazz Bridge Project (NJ): Provide restorative dental care for senior jazz musicians in need in South Jersey communities.
Jersey Shore University Medical Center Dental Clinic (Neptune, NJ): Remove seniors, primarily in Asbury Park and Neptune, from the new-appointment four-year waiting list and provide them with preventive and restorative care including removable dentures at the only charity care dental clinic in the region.
Morristown Medical Center, Senior Smiles Program (Morristown, NJ): Fund the supplies and lab fees that allow comprehensive, no-cost dental services for the area’s charity care geriatric patients.
Rutgers University Foundation (Newark, NJ): Provide dentures to edentulous seniors in Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, Atlantic, Cape May, and Salem counties.
We are happy to support these organizations and are proud of the work each of them do in restoring the oral health and smiles of seniors!
