TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas dental health organization has been awarded $100,000 to improve access to oral health care around the state.

The grant to Oral Health Kansas from the DentaQuest Foundation will be used to fund a multi-year initiative. The foundation is supported by a Boston-based oral health benefits company called DentaQuest.

Oral Health Kansas will work on the project with the Kansas Dental Association, Kansas Hospital Association, Leading Age Kansas and the Kansas Health Care Association.

Goals include creating pilot programs to strengthen local dental care and identifying barriers to access.
