The First Nonprofit Dental Clinic in Colorado.

Founded in 1974, Dental Aid was the first nonprofit, stand-alone, comprehensive dental clinic in Colorado. Since 2012, a Dental Aid Registered Dental Hygienist has also been providing care in non-clinic community settings such as schools and community centers. Today, we continue to serve low-income and uninsured children and adults along the Front Range.

In 2016, Dental Aid was able to provide more than 7,777 individual children, youth and adults with high-quality, comprehensive preventive and restorative dental care in our clinics. Our partnerships with funders and donors gives us the unique opportunity to financially assist uninsured, undocumented and homeless persons

Our Approach

Dental Aid’s approach to care is patient centered. The dentist and patient together decide on a treatment plan that is manageable. Patients and providers work together to find the best approach for each individual to receive the highest quality care with the best prognosis.

Patient involvement in decision making is essential to Dental Aid’s philosophy of care. The final goal is oral health that can be maintained over time.

Dental Aid employs specialists in children, straightening teeth and oral surgery, as well as general dentists. The combination of providers means we can meet the needs of all age groups.

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry now recommend that babies have their first dental visit by their first birthday. Early dental visits focused on prevention can help your child have a cavity free smile.

Yes. Cavities develop due to certain bacteria that are found in most peoples’ mouths. Researchers believe babies are born without these cavity-causing bacteria but can “catch” them from their parents. You can help protect your child by not cleaning your baby’s pacifier with your mouth and not sharing utensils or drinking liquid out of the same cup. Visiting a dentist and improving your own oral health can also help protect your baby’s teeth. The healthier your mouth is, the fewer bad bacteria you will have to give to your child.

Yes, for you and your baby it is important that you get your mouth as healthy as you can.

Yes, dentistry is safe. Everything we do, including x-rays is safe. It will not hurt your baby. In fact, untreated oral disease in pregnant women has been linked to pre-term births, and in extreme cases, stillbirth.

Sealants can help protect the grooves of back teeth where many cavities are found. They are a plastic material that is painlessly applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. Combined with good brushing and flossing, research shows they can help keep your child’s teeth protected from cavities.
