DCI, a family owned company for two generations, has announced a new partnership with America’s Dentists Care Foundation, the charitable organization who facilitates Mission of Mercy free oral health care events for the underserved. Since 2000, ADCF Mission of Mercy events have helped more than 222,000 patients and provided $142 million in free oral health care.
Recently ADCF lost a trailer containing mobile dental equipment to an accident and fire in East St. Louis. The ADCF Mission of Mercy operations utilizes only two 100 unit trailers to serve missions across the United States. According to Gerry Murphy, ADCF Program Manager, “Fortunately, ADCF has managed to form new relationships and strengthen old relationships because of this mishap. Among the new relationships to transpire, DCI has agreed to step up in a big way. Donating over $22,000 in dental parts alone will go a long way to helping ADCF replace all that was lost back on the side of I-70.” Murphy added, “With DCI’s rapid response and delivery, ADCF has managed to get back on the road to recovery in a short amount of time. ADCF appreciates the gracious donation and looks forward to an ongoing partnership with DCI.”
In addition to this donation, DCI and ADCF have formed a partnership whereby DCI will provide the organization with all of the dental replacement parts needed to keep equipment in working order to facilitate the delivery of care through the Mission of Mercy program. John Spencer, CEO, said, “Since DCI started over 30 years ago, one of our guiding principles has always been to provide dental care for those in need. So, when we got the call about the accident, it was natural to jump in to help get the ADCF back up and running. It’s not just a one-time donation. We’re honored to continue to support America’s Dentists Care Foundation with the parts they need to provide care to the underserved through the Mission of Mercy program.”
