Over $52,000 in donated carbide burs were distributed to eleven members of the America’s ToothFairy Dental Resource Program, a national network of non-profit clinics providing essential oral health care to underserved children and families in their communities.
“We believe all children should have access to a high standard of dental care, but that is difficult for clinics to provide if they don’t have the proper equipment,” said Tom Gallop, CEO of SS White. “We are happy to work with America’s ToothFairy to get these clinics the tools they need and thrilled to take part in helping so many children.”
“Members of our Dental Resource Program can help so many more children when corporate sponsors get involved, so we are very grateful to SS White for their generosity and continued support of children’s oral health,” said Jill Malmgren, NCOHF Executive Director. “This donation of carbide burs will help the clinics we support provide vital dental services to underserved children around the nation.”
