Improving oral health in HDS-operated communities

Our Mission

The HDS Foundation’s objective is to improve oral health in the communities where HDS operates (Hawaii, Guam and Saipan). Grants will be limited to projects related to the advancement of oral health. HDS will consider programs and projects that promote oral health education, prevention of oral disease and access to dental care by underserved populations.

Kalihi keiki are getting free dental check-ups right at their school. With the support of the Hawaii Dental Service Foundation, Kokua Kalihi Valley (KKV) community health centers have expanded dental services to the underserved families in the community with a mobile screening vehicle. KKV’s dental clinic on wheels brings dental services to Kalihi schools to help students develop good oral care habits from an early age.
