Nonprofit dental clinics across the nation will be better equipped to provide essential oral care services to children in need due to a product donation from SS White to America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF).
With a retail value of $24,894, the donation comprised an assortment of carbide burs that were distributed to 13 members of the America’s ToothFairy Dental Resource Program, a national network of nonprofit clinics providing essential oral healthcare to underserved children and families in their communities.
FirstHealth Dental Care, a nonprofit dental clinic located in Southern Pines, NC, was one of the first recipient clinics to benefit from SS White’s donation. Since its inception in 1998, FirstHealth Dental Care has served more than 25,000 children in their community.
“On behalf of FirstHealth Dental Care, I would like to thank SS White for the generous donation of burs,” said Dena Locklear, program manager at FirstHealth Dental. “These products will impact so many children and aid us in providing dental care for our patients.”
“SS White is happy to support the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation and the member clinics of its Dental Resource Program,” said Tom Gallop, CEO of SS White. “We are proud to provide these nonprofit clinics with the tools they need to better serve children in their communities.”
“We are very grateful to SS White for their generosity and continued support of children’s oral health,” said Jill Malmgren, NCOHF executive director. “This donation of carbide burs will allow members of our Dental Resource Program to provide underserved children around the nation with the dental services they need in order to build happy and healthy futures.”
