Reconnecting with Linda Maytan DDS, MPH with Hope Dental Clinic

Mar 23 2020

Recently, I had a great time reconnecting with my dental class colleague, Linda Maytan, D.D.S., M.P.H.  She is on the Board of Directors at Hope Dental Clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota as the Dental Policy Director, Minnesota Department of Human Services.  Their mission is to provide dental care to those most in need, regardless of the ability to pay.  Their vision is to offer our patients hope and a reason to smile, by expanding our connections to the community, oral health care providers, and students.  They have been creating smiles since 1965.  From the Bethel Hotel, the growing clinic relocated to Union Gospel Mission’s campus on University Avenue on St. Paul’s East Side. And in 2017 it became Hope Dental Clinic, an independent non-profit 501(c)3 corporation.

Hope Dental continues to serve thousands people every year in its new location. Patients include anyone who lacks dental insurance and the means to pay for care elsewhere.  The clinic continues to rely on the talent of licensed clinicians as well as students entering the dental field.  Great work, Linda!
