About Apple Tree Dental

At Apple Tree Dental, our mission is to improve the oral health of all people, including those with special access needs who face barriers to care.

Apple Tree’s 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.

Apple Tree operates six Centers for Dental Health in Minnesota, plus an Outreach Clinic co-located with Family Medical Center on the St. Gabriel’s Hospital campus in Little Falls, Minnesota. We operate year-round On-Site Care Programs through partnerships with more than 130 Head Start centers, schools, group homes, senior assisted living programs, and long-term care facilities. Our specially trained dentists and multilingual staff provide preventive care and treatment to more than 30,000 patients each year. We are nationally recognized for our pioneering approach to integrating dental care as part of overall health and well-being, and we are proud to serve everyone; transcending age, ability, or need.

Centers for Dental Health in San Mateo County, California, which Apple Tree helped launch, are now operated independently by Sonrisas Dental Health. More information about these programs is available at
