Oral Health America Preps for the 25th Annual Gala & Benefit

Posted on Tuesday, February 24, 2015

CHICAGO, February 17 — Tickets and sponsorships are still available for Oral Health America’s (OHA) 25th Annual Gala & Benefit, being held this year at the beautiful Hilton Chicago on February 25. The gala is the premier networking event of the year for the dental industry and a major fundraiser for OHA’s programs that improve the nation’s overall health through oral health.

In addition to being the 25th anniversary of the event, this year’s gala will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of OHA as an organization through the theme Smiles Under Silver Stars. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception that offers an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the industry while browsing through silent auction items that will benefit OHA’s programs. Following the reception there will be a gourmet dinner, live music from the Ken Arlen Orchestra, an exciting live auction and a raffle for a 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet. A presentation will also be made during the event celebrating OHA’s history and the work the organization continues to do to connect communities with resources to increase access to care and health literacy.

“We appreciate the support we receive from the dental industry every year for our Gala & Benefit. With this year’s event marking two such important anniversaries, it will surely be an evening to remember,” said OHA President and CEO Beth Truett.

The gala is generously sponsored by Presenting Sponsor Kavo Kerr Group, Technology Sponsors Ivoclar Vivadent and Patterson Dental, Diamond Sponsors Colgate, DentaQuest, DENTSPLY International, Henry Schein, Philip Sonicare, SciCan and Septodont, Platinum Sponsors Darby Dental, DentalEZ and Midmark, Raffle Sponsor Aspen Dental, Quick Raffle Sponsor Oral Arts Dental Laboratories and Gold Sponsors Belmont Publications, Bisco, Burkhart, DentaPure, Planmeca and Unilever.
