ND Toothbrush Project

ND Toothbrush Project

As difficult as it is to believe, there are members of our community in North Dakota who do not have a toothbrush. This seems too simple not to tackle so we built the North Dakota Toothbrush Project to build awareness of this problem and give dental supplies (toothbrush, toothpaste and floss) to groups who serve individuals in need. It’s simple ask and we supply.

ND School Sealant Program

ND School Sealant Program

This innovative program sees the North Dakota Dental Foundation, State Oral Health Program (Department of Health), and our communities’ Private Dentists team up to deliver a School Sealant Program to serve “at risk” kids throughout North Dakota. Our innovative dental sealant program affords kids in North Dakota - some who cannot access dental care one of their most basic needs - oral health. This helps our kids medically, socially and academically as untreated tooth decay can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing, and learning.
