Charlotte, NC– Thanks to a generous product donation from 3M Oral Care, America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) continues to expand the delivery of oral health services across the country, ensuring children in need receive vital dental care from non-profit clinics in their communities.
The donation consisted of Paradigm™ and Elipar™ Deep Curing Lights and Vanish™ Fluoride White Varnish, as well as various Imprint™, Impregum™ and Filtek™ products. Valued at $96,457, the dental products were distributed to 10 dental service providers that are part of the America’s ToothFairy Dental Resource Program, a national network of non-profit dental clinics dedicated to providing comprehensive oral health services to children and communities in need.
With this latest donation, 3M Oral Care has given a total of $278,625 in dental products to America’s ToothFairy’s network of non-profit clinics in the 2017 fiscal year, increasing access to oral health education and service programs for children across the nation.
Kids’ Community Dental Clinic was grateful to be one of the recipients of these valuable dental products. Located in Burbank, California, the organization provides non-profit dental services to underserved children and families. “Dental materials are one of our highest expenses and these donations really help us serve more children,” said Dale Morimizu Gorman, Executive Director of the Kids’ Community Dental Clinic. “The lights will help us expand services as we hope to double in size with more operatories in the next 18-36 months. These materials are the cornerstone of pediatric care and we are so grateful for this very vital donation.”
