Tokuyama Dental’s corporate social responsibility program, Tokuyama Empowers, strives to increase access to affordable dental care. By donating much-needed dental supplies to nonprofits and free clinics, Tokuyama Empowers helps people receive the care needed to improve their health and quality of life. Over the summer, Tokuyama made a commitment to donate to their social responsibility partners for every purchase made in July. The campaign was a success and more than $185,000+ worth of products were given to various dental nonprofits in the United States and Canada.
HOW TOKUYAMA EMPOWERS STARTED
More than 114 million people in the United States do not have dental coverage. Lack of access to dental care disproportionately affects low-income people, those with no insurance, and underserved populations. As a result, a large segment of the U.S. population is more likely to suffer from untreated oral problems.
Tokuyama Dental America recognized the oral health disparities that persist and decided to establish Tokuyama Empowers, the company’s corporate social responsibility program. Tokuyama Empowers was created to make dental care more accessible to underserved and uninsured populations.
Tokuyama Empowers works closely with nonprofits, free clinics, national and local associations, and volunteer dentists to identify what their needs are. We support our partners by donating high-quality dental products, enabling them to provide free or affordable dental care.
