Maple Family Dental is a Pillar of Community Care and Dental Excellence

Written by: Brady Drake

Maple Family Dental, a veteran-owned and operated company located in Horace, ND, prides itself on community involvement, education, and excellence in dental care. The practice, steered by the husband-wife duo of Dr. Jonathan Bultema, DDS, and Tara Bultema, Oral Health Educator, is not just a practice—it’s an integral part of the community.

“Maple Family Dental is here to care for our community and families through the many changing seasons of life. We are thrilled to be a constant source of quality comprehensive dental care and encouragement through life’s ups and downs,” Dr. Bultema said. Their engagement extends to collaborative efforts with the ND Department of Health, facilitating Preventative Dentistry in local schools.

Maple Family Dental is involved in the Red River Dental Access Clinic and Donated Dental services as volunteers. Their community outreach doesn’t stop at the local level. Maple Family Dental’s contributions span across homeless shelters, nonprofit organizations, overseas dental missions, toy drives, food drives, and sponsorships. They are ingrained in community events, epitomizing their tagline: “We Care About YOU…And Your Teeth.”

Since its inception seven years ago, Maple Family Dental has educated thousands through their oral health education initiative, staying true to their mission of caring about people, serving through dentistry, and influencing the community for the Glory of God. Through their unwavering commitment, they continue to foster a culture of education, experience, and excellence.

What do you support?

Local People and Organizations

“Our motto is, ‘We Care About YOU… And Your Teeth.’ And we stick to those principles. People will reach out to us for help and we try to support local people and organizations as much as we can. An example would be someone doing a fundraiser through Lend a Hand Up for someone who just came down with a cancer diagnosis. We often support by donating our services to silent auctions, such as teeth whitening or new patient exam and x-rays.”

“Horace is a growing community and there are new sports and family activities coming to our area, and we want to help make our community better by supporting those things as well.”

Haiti Eye Mission

“We love doing dental mission trips to Guatemala, and we know teeth! We like to support Haiti Eye Mission because they know eyes and their mission is fabulous!”

New Life Center

“New Life Center is such a pillar of support for those homeless in our region. We support them financially, with dental services (through the Genesis Program) and with sock, mitten, and clothing drives through Life 97.9.”


“CAMcares is an organization created in memory of Camden (9) and Maxwell (19 months). We want to continue to carry on their big hearts by giving and blessing others and spreading kindness. Currently, they hold a yearly toy drive and a CAMcares award at a local school to give to kids in need.”

Do It Well Inc

“Do It Well was started in memory of Jeremiah Solhjem, a boy who loved legos and blessing other people. We do LEGO drives and they give LEGOs and action Bibles to kids in tough situtations, to give them encouragement and hope.”

The Perry Center

“The Perry Center housing, resources, and mentorship for young moms who are pregnant and experiencing difficulties. This can be a lonely and scary time for these mothers and it is great that we have organizations like this to support them.”

“Those are trying times in the lives of people and we want to be there in life’s ups and downs.”

Toothbrush Ministries

“There is a toothbrush ministry that is actually not run by us. They collect toothbrushes and distribute them to people in need.”
