Northeast Delta Dental Foundation Supports the Concord Hospital Family Health Center Dental Clinic as a Benefactor Circle Donor

The Northeast Delta Dental Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 grant to Concord Hospital as part of its ongoing commitment to help address oral health access issues. As part of the Benefactors Circle, Northeast Delta Dental has made a significant investment to foster a partnership which strengthens the Hospital’s services and programs.

This gift helps Concord Hospital Family Health Center Dental Clinic purchase needed dental and denture supplies. The Dental Clinic provides a full range of dental care for teens and adults that are low-income, uninsured or Medicaid insured and cannot receive dental care in a private practice. In 2016, the Dental Clinic cared for 772 patients.

“The Northeast Delta Dental Foundation has been awarding grants to oral health programs in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont since 1995. There are so many compelling linkages between oral health and overall wellness that we appreciate the opportunity to support Concord Hospital as they work hard to make our community healthier,” said Kathleen Walker, the Foundation’s treasurer.

Northeast Delta Dental administers dental benefits to more than 853,000 people in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, offering dental insurance programs for organizations of all sizes and individuals and families with no access to employer-sponsored dental benefits.

“Given the many financial unknowns that our health system faces, philanthropic support is vital if Concord Hospital is to maintain the myriad of services we provide and our attention to the health needs of the most vulnerable people and community members overall,” said Robert P. Steigmeyer, Concord Hospital president/CEO. "Northeast Delta Dental has been a wonderful partner and we are grateful to have benefited from their support through the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation since 1999.”
