UNDATED -- Delta Dental of Oklahoma announced its charitable foundation will triple the statewide funding for dental care this year to $1.5 million.

The insurance company will donate the funds to different community organizations that provide dental care to low income Oklahomans.

On Monday, they provided Neighbor For Neighbor with a check for $100,000.

"One of the things we like about Neighbor For Neighbor is if you present yourself in need of care, they'll do everything they can to provide that care for you. They do not qualify, they don't discriminate, they just help people that need help," said John Gladden, Delta Dental.

Other organizations across the state will receive grants for the rest of the money.
