Other Sources of Revenue

Depending on the goals and objectives of the safety net dental clinic as related to balancing access to care and financial stability, other revenue may be needed to supplement earnings from patient care. The clinic must have access to resources and people with the skills necessary to acquire the two major sources of non-patient-care revenue, both of which are discussed later on in this unit:

  • Grants (government, private foundations, corporations, community foundations, and public charities)
  • Fundraising (donations)
