America’s ToothFairy will host its sixth annual Bid for Smiles online charity auction from March 20 through March 27 at bidforsmiles.com. Dental products and equipment will be available for deep discounts, the nonprofit group says, with proceeds benefitting preventive service programs to help kids in need prevent tooth decay.
“The dental community always rallies around this event, not only because of the cost savings, but also because it supports such an important cause. Every bid brings a smile for everyone involved,” said Jill Malmgren, executive director of America’s ToothFairy.
“Our donors get to invest in a cause that supports children’s oral health while showcasing their products to potential customers. Our bidders save on supplies and equipment that they need anyway. And the nonprofit clinics we support get more resources to serve more children,” said Malmgren.
To participate, bidders can register online at bidforsmiles.org any time before the auction ends but are encouraged to register before the event begins to receive reminders and item previews.
Also, all participants will receive an exclusive discount worth $350 off the purchase of any autoclave from Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions plus 5% off any quarterly preventive maintenance kits for autoclaves during 2020.
