Northampton Dental Initiative...
In January 2007, the Foundation launched The Northampton Dental Initiative (NDI), an innovative program developed in response to the overwhelming need for increased access to quality oral health care for the underserved residents of our community. The program has been a wonderful success with over 3,500 total patient visits completed since 2007. The response from our patients, many of whom are experiencing dental care for the first time in their lives, has been one of overwhelming gratitude.
NDI provides free dental care to residents of Northampton County meeting financial criteria (income level cannot exceed 150% of the federal poverty level).
NDI consist of a network of collaborating local dentists providing a full range of basic preventative and restorative services in their offices. NDI also provides treatment at a portable clinic that operates at the Foundation office or a community location.
