Septodont Donates $200,000 in Products to America’s ToothFairy

Septodont has donated $200,000 worth of products to America’s ToothFairy. The nonprofit organization then distributed the donations to 27 members of its Dental Resource Program (DRP), which provides supplies to 67 nonprofit dental clinics and groups serving children in need in 24 states. More than 500,000 children would lack access to dental care and preventive treatment if not for these clinics, America’s ToothFairy says. 

“We are so thankful for America’s ToothFairy and Septodont,” said Mary Larkin of Apple Tree Dental, a DRP clinic member headquartered in Mounds View, Minnesota. “Ours are among the few clinics in Minnesota that help overcome barriers to care for thousands of children. These much needed products are being used at all seven of our centers across the state, which cared for 34,445 patients last year.”

Septodont has provided operational and program support for America’s ToothFairy since 2008. It also has served as a Title Sponsor for the nonprofit’s National Sealant Initiative, which provides sealants and preventive care for more than 100,000 children each year. In addition to contributing Toothfairy Pit & Fissure Sealant to protect 300,000 teeth, Septodont’s donation included injectable anesthetics such as Lignospan, Septocaine, Carbocaine, and Marcaine, as well as N’Durance composites and other restorative products.

“Corporate social responsibility is extremely important in our organization,” said Paul Mondock, Septodont president of the Americas and board treasurer for America’s ToothFairy. “When millions of children don’t have access to basic necessities like dental care, the right thing to do is for all stakeholders within the dental community to give back and make sure those needs are met. We are proud to partner with America’s ToothFairy to ensure these children receive essential oral health services.” 

“We are very grateful for this generous donation of Septodont products and for their loyal commitment over the past several years,” said Jill Malmgren, America’s ToothFairy executive director. “Septodont’s financial and product contributions have enabled America’s ToothFairy to provide the necessary resources to education and support the delivery of dental care for thousands of children. The passion and support of Mr. Mondock and the entire Septodont team for our mission is making a direct impact on the oral health of our nation’s most vulnerable kids.”
