Premier Dental Products Company has donated 10,000 individual treatments of its Enamel Pro Varnish to the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) program, which has provided underserved children across the United States with free oral healthcare since 2003.
“Dentistry is the gateway to our overall health and well-being. We want to ensure that everyone, all communities and populations, have the opportunity to receive excellent oral healthcare,” said Julie Charlestein, president and CEO of Premier Dental Products Company.
Each year, approximately 6,500 dentists and 30,000 dental team members volunteer at local GKAS events to provide free oral health education, screenings, and preventive and restorative treatment to more than 300,000 children.
To date, more than 6 million underserved children have received free oral health services through the GKAS program. Over the past 15 years, Premier Dental Products Company has donated more than $4 million to the program as well.
“With the COVID-19 pandemic further adding to the barriers many face in receiving this vital care, Premier Dental is proud to celebrate its fifteenth year of supporting the efforts of the Give Kids a Smile program to bring free oral care to children in need,” said Charlestein.
