Dedicating Dental Services to Unhoused Angelenos

Homeless Not Toothless

Homeless Not Toothless (HNT) was established in 1992, after Founder and President Jay Grossman, DDS, began handing out his business card to homeless residents he encountered on the streets. Within seven months of handing out his first business card, Dr. Grossman had performed more than 100 pro bono procedures for homeless clients, leading him to expand his practice into a nonprofit organization. HNT partnered with the Venice Family Clinic to make this transition, and the two organizations continue to work closely together today. Nearly three decades after its founding, HNT has served more than 60,000 patients–including veterans, homeless individuals, foster youth, and other low-income Angelenos–out of nearly three dozen office locations. Beyond offering dental services, HNT seeks to address other challenges facing many of its clients; patients are required to engage in substance abuse recovery and to seek employment.
