We are a nonprofit organization serving Tarrant County since 1993. The clinic provides dental care to low-income individuals and families to help them avoid future health issues and emergency dental problems. DHA understands that dental care is expensive, but without dental health it is difficult to be employed and to smile! It is our mission to make a trip to the dentist both affordable and worthwhile for patients.
SMILES is DHA’s school based program. This innovative program aims to educate young children on the importance of preventative care and regular visits to their dentist. In addition to educating, SMILES also provides free toothbrushes, sealants, and flouride to children in the community. SMILES annually benefits over 9,000 children in elementary schools. Each school year over 4,000 decay-preventing sealants are placed for 1,400 children and flouride was provided to 3,100 children, for a total of $407,000 in care to the community.
