The event will celebrate the ongoing partnership between BIOLASE and Healthy Smiles, while extending an invitation for local dentists to join the mission to improve the oral health of children in Orange County
BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, and Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County (Healthy Smiles) are inviting dental professionals in the Orange County area to an awareness reception around the shared mission to improve the oral health of children in the community.
The event is open to all members of the dental community and will be held Sept. 24 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the BIOLASE Learning Center, at 27042 Towne Centre Dr, Foothill Ranch, Calif. Guests can hear testimonials from families treated at Healthy Smiles as well as providers who have used BIOLASE's Waterlase dental lasers to transform the dental experience one smile at a time. BIOLASE will also present HSK with a new Waterlase i-Plus all-tissue laser at the event, to commemorate the partnership.
"We are excited to bring more members of the dental community in on a cause that is so close to our hearts, and in on the fun that we have with our long-standing partner, Healthy Smiles," said John Beaver, President and CEO of BIOLASE. "It has been moving over the years to see our mission of advancing density embraced by so many in the area, and we continue to seek out ways that we can give back. I believe this is just another step in reaching our goal of raising a generation of kids not afraid of going to the dentist."
Since 2018, Healthy Smiles and BIOLASE have collaborated on local programs directed at prevention, outreach and education, access to treatment, and advocacy in the community. 1 in 3 children living in Orange County are reported to have tooth decay, while 1 in 10 children living in the area have never visited a dentist. Healthy Smiles' clinics and school-based programs have provided critical dental services to underserved children since 2003, reaching around 100,000 children and parents each year.
"This year we hit a milestone of our millionth child served since inception," said Ria Berger, Chief Executive Officer of Healthy Smiles. "It is partners like BIOLASE that make a number like this possible. We are deeply appreciative of BIOLASE for their support, and offering the Healthy Smiles team, and the families who have benefited from our services, a platform like this event to share their stories."
