Dentsply Sirona Collaborates With America’s ToothFairy on “Bid for Smiles” to Raise $26,000 to Support Dental Care for Children in Need

Posted on Thursday, June 8, 2023

Dentsply Sirona continues to partner with America’s ToothFairy to support their shared mission of increasing access to dental care for children in need.

When children have healthy smiles, they have a better chance of reaching their potential. Unfortunately, millions of kids across the United States lack access to a dental care provider, resulting in higher rates of untreated tooth decay and risk of dangerous infections. America’s ToothFairy helps improve the lives of these children by providing essential resources that help nonprofit dental organizations serve more kids each year.

One way the nonprofit organization funds its mission is through an online auction of dental supplies and equipment. Most recently held in March 2023, “Bid For Smiles” raised $26,000 to support prevention resources and services for 5,000 children who otherwise might not receive the dental services they need to be healthy.

Sponsoring for a good cause

“We count on the generosity of our sponsors and donors in order to make our auction a success,” said Jill Malmgren, executive director of America’s ToothFairy. ““Bid For Smiles” would not have been as successful without the support of its major sponsor, Dentsply Sirona. Their $10’000 financial support helped us procure product donations, promote participation, and ultimately raise enough to help an additional 5,000 kids get the dental services they need to prevent tooth decay.”

“We believe every child should have access to the dental care they need to be healthy,” added Lisa Yankie, Chief Human Resources Officer and Communications at Dentsply Sirona. “We’re proud to partner with America’s ToothFairy to help children in communities that lack adequate dental services get the preventive care they need to grow up with a healthy smile.”

A shared mission of improving oral health for children in need

Dentsply Sirona’s support of this cause is encompassed in its Sustainability strategy, BEYOND, which builds on the company’s long-established Corporate Social Responsibility Platform. At the heart of BEYOND is the ambition to improve oral health around the world, protect the environment, be a trustworthy corporate citizen, and foster a diverse and inclusive environment within the workplace and society. To achieve this, Dentsply Sirona has set for itself ambitious sustainability goals, supports industry-wide cooperations and brings to the table the willingness to go above and beyond to achieve real changes for a more sustainable future in dentistry.
