MGE Management Experts raised more than $109,000 for America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation during the fundraising auction at its Owner’s Conference Graduation Dinner on May 9 at Armature Works in Tampa, Florida. 

America’s ToothFairy increases access to oral healthcare by supporting nonprofit clinics and community partners delivering education, prevention, and treatment services for underserved children. The funds raised from the auction will be used to support: 

  • The Gap Program: This program provides direct funding for children who need urgent or restorative dental care that costs more than their families can afford. In many cases, these children suffer from poor oral health and struggle with pain, schoolwork, and low self-esteem. Thanks to the donation, 30 children will receive life-changing dental care.
  • The Protect Your Smile Education Initiative: Funding will be used to distribute Protect Your Smile Resource Kits to schools, nonprofit dental clinics, and community organizations, with the potential to reach at least 10,000 children. Kits will include toothbrushes, activity sheets, mirror clings, brushing charts, and scripted oral health lessons and activities.
  • Screen & Clean ToothFairy Grants: Grants from the event’s proceeds will be awarded to nonprofit clinical partners delivering preventive services such as dental screenings and cleanings for a minimum of 2,000 children in need.
