Tokuyama Dental America has launched Tokuyama Empowers, the company’s corporate social responsibility program to make dental care available to those in need. In cooperation with national and local associations, non-profits, free clinics, and volunteer dentists, Tokuyama Dental America aims to remove the barriers to access treatment for uninsured and underserved parts of the population, enabling them to receive the care they need to improve their health and quality of life.
One of the first organizations Tokuyama Empowers is partnering with is the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation’s (AACDCF) Give Back a Smile program. Give Back a Smile provides free dental care to adult women and men who have suffered dental injuries from domestic and sexual violence. By helping to restore their smiles, the program is healing some of the most devastating effects of the violence these victims endured and is supporting them on their road to recovery. Tokuyama Dental America has donated over $86,000 worth of products to Give Back a Smile, including Estelite Omega, a polychromatic esthetic composite system designed for anterior restorations with natural-looking results.
Corporate Social Responsibility has always been a core value of Tokuyama Corporation, the parent company of Tokuyama Dental. For more information, visit tokuyama-us.com, or call 877-378-3548.
