Meet our Partner: American Heart Association

At Mortenson Family Dental, Kid’s Dentistree and BracesBracesBraces (Mortenson Dental Partners), we are committed to improving the overall health of the communities we serve. Oral health is very connected to your heart and overall health. Poor oral health can lead to pain and discomfort, it can affect your ability to eat nutritious foods, it can impact your quality of sleep, and infection in your teeth or gums can spread throughout your body. That is why we partner with the American Heart Association (AHA) to raise awareness for cardiovascular health and wellness.

Meet the AHA


The American Heart Association is a non-profit organization focused on heart disease and stroke education that impact communities across the United States. They advocate smoke-free zones, more walkable and bikable streets, better nutrition and health education in public schools, and affordable healthcare for all. Their work is funded by events such as Heart Walks, Heart Balls, Go Red For Women Luncheons, Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart; by memorial gifts and by donations to our workplace giving and mail campaigns. Individuals, corporations and foundations support our work with generous donations. Planned giving vehicles include wills, trusts, gift annuities and gifts of appreciated assets. Learn more.

Close to Our Hearts

At Mortenson Dental Partners, heart health is important to us for more than its impact on oral health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, and as an organization, the majority of our team members are women. Not only that, but the majority of our followers on social media are women too! We are committed to helping spread awareness and funding research to help educate the community, but to also positively impact the lives of our team members and patients. The work of the AHA is saving lives each and every day and we want to support that effort.

For the last two years, we have called on our team members and patients to help us raise funds for the American Heart Association Heart Walk. It is because of your generosity that we are proudly able to say, Mortenson Dental Partners has been the top fundraising company for the walk for the part two years! For that we say thank you! Thank you for making our community a better place to live, for helping to fund life saving research, thank you for helping educate others about the importance of heart health and for rallying together to support such a great cause!
