National Children’s Oral Health Foundation, known as America’s ToothFairy, was formed in 2006 in an aggressive response to eliminate pediatric dental disease by providing community programs with the comprehensive resources to deliver vital educational, preventive, and treatment services to children of the most vulnerable populations. Supporting the delivery of oral health education and care beginning at the prenatal level, America’s ToothFairy engages caring dental professionals and the general public in programs designed to promote children’s oral health. Through the generosity of dedicated supporters like Cosmedent, America’s ToothFairy has reached millions of children through its national non-profit clinical network and volunteer professional and student community service programs.
Cosmedent was founded in 1982 to meet the early demands of educating dentists in the use of composite materials for esthetic dentistry. As one of the pioneering companies in esthetic dental education, Cosmedent operates the Center for Esthetic Excellence, a highly interactive, hands-on educational center at its corporate headquarters in downtown Chicago, IL. While maintaining its focus on education, Cosmedent worked with practicing dentists to develop a line of quality products including dental composites, dental adhesives, resin cements, finishing and polishing materials, and core buildup materials that changed the face of dentistry.
