New commitment to reach 500,000 children in 10 years.
Ten years ago, Oral Health America made a commitment to America's Promise Alliance, founded by Colin and Alma Powell, to contribute to their "Get a Healthy Start" initiative by promising to provide one million sealants to at least 225,000 children by 2010.
Thanks to the generosity of its supporters and sponsors, OHA's "Seal Two Million by 2010" campaign has surpassed that goal, and is now doubling its original commitment to America's Promise by promising to provide two million more sealants to 500,000 at-risk children by 2020.
Oral Health America is grateful for the significant number of donated dental sealants provided by DENTSPLY International, 3M ESPE, Pulpdent Corporation, Harry J. Bosworth Company, and Ivoclar Vivadent. These companies enabled OHA to provide dental sealant materials to 900 non-profit community-based treatment partners in 27 states.
