"Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: The Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry is committed to supporting community-based initiatives providing Dental Homes to children whose families cannot afford dental care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a Dental Home as the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care, delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way. One way Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children (HSHC) supports this goal is through one-year Access to Care Grants in support of care for children up to age 18. HSHC Access to Care Grants support community-based initiatives in the U.S. that provide dental care and ultimately serve as a Dental Home to underserved/limited access children."
