Delta Dental Foundation Calls for Applicants for Annual Community Mini-Grant Program

OKEMOS, Mich., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Community-based oral health programs in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana are encouraged to apply for grants up to $5,000 from the Delta Dental Foundation's third annual Community Mini-Grant Program.
