Guardian Life Insurance Company of America — a dental insurer —  is supporting a group that helps people who have no way to pay for dental care.

The New York-based company is giving $400,000 to the Dental Lifeline Network.

Dental Lifeline Network will use the money to support its Donated Dental Services program. The program helps 15,000 volunteer dentists donate their services to elderly people and medically fragile people in Connecticut, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Virginia who have no private or public dental insurance.

In 2018, Guardian gave $125,000 to Washington state, to help the state pay for dental care for 147 people left stranded by a lack of state dental care funding.
