D-DENT, Inc.

Dentists for the disabled and elderly in need of treatment


Dentist for the Disabled and Elderly in Need of Treatment, Inc. (D-DENT) was founded in the Spring of 1986.  D-DENT is a 501©(3) entity as determined by the Federal IRS and is registered with the State of Oklahoma as a non-profit organization available to tax-deductible donations. 

D-DENT began its operation as a project of Variety Health Center, a United Way funded agency that agreed to serve as the fiscal agent for the D-DENT Program. Consequently, the D-DENT Program became its own agency on October 1, 1990 with a $100,000 grant from the Oklahoma State Legislature administered through the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Dental Division.  D-DENT is a two time recipient of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Champions of Health Award.   The first award was presented to

D-DENT in 2006 was “CHAMPIONS OF SENIOR HEALTH,” for the work provided to uninsured, low-income seniors.  The second award was presented to D-DENT in 2011 was the “CHAMPIONS OF THE UNINSURED,” for the dental care D-DENT provides to uninsured, low-income veterans. In 2012, D-DENT received the distinguished ONE (Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence) award as the winner of the Seniors category from the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation & Herman Kaiser Foundation .

Today, we celebrate 28 years of helping Oklahoma’s Dental professionals restore the oral health of Oklahomans in need.
