Benco Family Foundation Tops 1 Million Toothbrush Donations

The Benco Family Foundation will donate PRO-SYS® toothbrushes to every Chicago Public School elementary student in celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month as well as contribute an additional 40,000 toothbrushes to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Dentistry community service programs. With these contributions, the Benco Family Foundation will top 1 million toothbrushes donated.

Since 2015, the Benco Family Foundation has assisted people worldwide through toothbrush donations with its Buy-One-Give-One program. For every PRO-SYSadult tapered or antimicrobial toothbrush purchased from Benco Dental, the philanthropic arm of America’s largest family-owned dental distributor donates a toothbrush to someone in need.

According to Patrick D. Smith, DMD, MPH, Clinical Assistant Professor, UIC-College of Dentistry, “The Division of Prevention and Public Health Sciences supports community-based initiatives geared toward increasing access to care and reducing oral disease of underserved populations. Our dental students work with over 35 community partners across the state to provide dental care and oral health education. This donation from the Benco Family Foundation will further those experiences and support our partners as they promote oral health in their respective communities.”

The Benco Family Foundation is dedicated to improving the dental health and quality of life in its local communities and around the world. Established in 2005, the foundation supports oral health solutions and community organizations that are innovative, sustainable, measurable and impactful.
