Non-profit dental clinics around the nation will be better equipped to provide essential oral care services to children in need thanks to a generous product donation from SS White made to America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF).
With a retail value of $24,894, the donation consisted of an assortment of carbide burs. Over $24,000 in donated carbide burs were distributed to thirteen members of the America’s ToothFairy Dental Resource Program, a national network of non-profit clinics providing essential oral health care to underserved children and families in their communities.
FirstHealth Dental Care, a non-profit dental clinic located in Southern Pines, NC, was one of the recipient clinics to benefit from SS White’s generous 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 non-profit 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.”
