At Apple Tree California, our mission is to improve the oral health of all people, including those with special access needs who face barriers to care. Our staff works to achieve its mission by delivering education, prevention, and restorative dental services to vulnerable populations and by providing leadership and innovation to transform the health care system. Our nonprofit model leverages community resources to accomplish its mission and aligns accountability with the mission.
In 2015, Apple Tree Dental and Sonrisas Community Dental affiliated to form Apple Tree Dental California (ATC), a 501(c) non profit, with Centers for Dental Health in San Mateo and Half Moon Bay. We offer services in our centers and on site using our mobile unit serving San Mateo County.
Sonrisas Community Dental Center opened its doors in 2001 to provide access to affordable dental care for low-income San Mateo Coastside residents. Founded in Minneapolis in 1985, Apple Tree Dental is a nonprofit dental practice dedicated to providing accessible oral health care for all with six Centers for Dental Health in Minnesota. Now affiliated under Apple Tree CA we are in a better position than ever to fulfill our mission.
