The Oral Health Foundation, funded by Delta Dental of Massachusetts, recently awarded $4 million in grants to Massachusetts organizations working to improve oral health throughout the state. The Martha’s Vineyard Hospital received $12,599.
The foundation is investing in affordable, and preventive oral health services for children, elderly and families in Massachusetts.
In April of 2008, the Vineyard hospital reopened its two-chair dental clinic which had been closed for four years. The foundation grant will be used to purchase new clinical equipment.
