IQ Dental Supply recently hosted the Fourth Annual Tee for the ToothFairy Charity Golf Tournament to benefit America’s ToothFairy and resources for children’s oral health programs.
Held at the Crystal Springs Resort & Spa in Hamburg, New Jersey, the event featured an appearance by Ken Daneyko, formerly of the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.
Funds raised through the event will provide educational resources to help 3,500 children in disadvantages communities learn to prevent dental disease, America’s ToothFairy said.
“This is an event we look forward to every year. The golfers had a wonderful time while also helping kids stay healthy,” said IQ Dental Supply president Sergey Kunin.
“As a board member of America’s ToothFairy, I see firsthand all the great work they do. It is an organization that I am proud to support,” said Kunin.
“After a year of lockdowns, it was great to get together with the wonderful people who support our mission to improve the oral health of our nation’s most vulnerable kids,” said Jill Malmgren, executive director of America’s ToothFairy.
“We are incredibly grateful for everyone who participated and of course for our thoughtful host and generous sponsors who made the event possible,” said Malmgren.
Proceeds will fund educational initiatives that help families in underserved communities avoid the consequences of poor dental hygiene habits, America’s ToothFairy said.
Since its founding in 2006, America’s ToothFairy has helped more than 8.8 million children and their caregivers learn how to keep their smiles healthy, the nonprofit said.
Other sponsors of the event included 3M, KaVo Kerr, DMG, GC America, Coltene, and Vatech.
The next Tee for the ToothFairy outing will be at Pine Island Country Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, on November 12, 2021. Opportunities to participate are available.
