There are many different types of dental grants available for adults including the Cosmetic Dentistry Grant through the Oral Aesthetic Advocacy Group, the Change a Life Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Adults may apply for a dental grant to help fix cosmetic or functional problems with their teeth, gums or mouth.
Most application processes for a dental grant require a written application and a physical assessment in addition to a consultation. A dentist will review the patient's problem areas to determine whether or not the patient qualifies for a dental grant. From there, the grant decision makers will look at all of the qualified applicants and make their decisions.
