Five Idaho dental programs will now serve more people in vulnerable populations, thanks to grants from The Idaho Dental Foundation . The grants, totaling $5,242, are part of the IDF’s mission to support oral health initiatives throughout the state of Idaho.

“The board was presented with many excellent opportunities for improving oral healthcare for Idaho’s underserved,” said John Matunas, Idaho Dental Foundation president. “We distributed funds to an unprecedented number of organizations this year because each will be able to do so much good in their communities with these funds.”

Grants were awarded to ISDA Dentistry Nursing Home Pilot Project in Boise and Buhl; Serve For Health in Nampa; Children’s Free Dental Clinic’s mobile oral health care unit, known as the Miles of Smiles program, in Eagle; Heritage Health in Coeur d’Alene; and Genesis World Mission at the Garden City Community Clinic.
