Prepare & Provide
The Oklahoma Dental Relief and Disaster Grant Program (RDGP) is a charitable entity that offers aid to dentists who, because of misfortune, natural disaster, chemical dependence, physical disability, or other hindering conditions, are not wholly self-sustaining. This program exists to award financial aid to Oklahoma dentists, yet relies solely on contributions.
As Oklahomans know well, anything can happen - and to anyone, at any time. It is important for this program to maintain its funding to support dentists in their greatest time of need. When the tornadoes struck Elk City, Oklahoma in May 2017, the RDGP took action and made considerable efforts to aid the dentists affected.
To make contributions such as these possible, the RDGP needs your help!
