(Charlotte, NC November 17, 2010) National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) and 3M ESPE encourage Greater New York Dental Meeting attendees to support America’s Toothfairy through recycling efforts at the show. From Nov. 28-30, 3M ESPE street teams will distribute complimentary beverages as part of the RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Cement launch. The cup bands can be recycled at 3M ESPE’s booth and for each cup band recycled, 3M ESPE will donate dental products to NCOHF. Similar activities at the American Dental Association Annual Session resulted in 3M ESPE donating $10,000 worth of dental products.
“The support of ADA attendees was overwhelming and we encourage those going to Greater New York to match the effort,” said Tim McGlynn, 3M ESPE marketing manager. “NCOHF is an eco-conscious organization that provides immeasurable support to children in need. This is a unique opportunity for every attendee to help NCOHF fight childhood dental disease”
"3M ESPE has been a dedicated partner in our mission to ensure all children can receive comprehensive oral health services," said Fern Ingber, NCOHF president and CEO. "We are proud to be the beneficiary of another innovative 3M ESPE program that promotes both recycling and healthy futures for underserved children in our country."

The organization supports direct delivery of oral health restorative, educational and preventive programs for underserved youth through a national Affiliate network of not-for-profit university- and community-based dental programs.
