DDOK President and CEO Receives 2018 Good Samaritan Award

Neighborhood Services Organization (NSO) recognized Delta Dental of Oklahoma President and CEO, John Gladden, at the inaugural NSO Good Samaritan Awards Luncheon on April 26, 2018.

Gladden was honored by NSO for his role in supporting their low-cost dental clinic, and his personal service and commitment to oral health related programs throughout the state. NSO funding, awarded by a grant from the DDOK Foundation, helps to reduce patients’ cost for dentures and partials.
