Dental Health for All™ Supports Smiles in Need!
Congratulations to our 2013 winners! Thanks to everyone for joining our effort to support smiles in need.
We asked you to enter our "Be a Tooth Fairy Hero" sweepstakes and share your child's artistic interpretation of the Tooth Fairy for a chance to win a $10,000 donation to a clinic in your area and a free supply of toothpaste for your child's school. The art we received is delightful! Thank you for sharing and supporting this critical program.
Our annual Dental Health for All™ program has awarded $1 million to community dental clinics over the past decade. We appreciate your help in achieving greater access to oral care services for families in need.
America needs Dental Health for All™
For many of us, keeping our pearly whites bright and healthy is simple. For 120 million Americans without dental insurance it's a luxury. The 2000 U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health tells us the real story. Patients can wait up to 12 months for an appointment at a public clinic. Many show signs of periodontal or gingival disease and it's not unusual to see 3-year olds needing multiple root canals due to rampant decay.
When your smile is bright, so is your neighbor's.
Dental Health for All™ works to improve this situation by supporting community organizations that provide dental care to people who would otherwise go without. Tom's of Maine is proud to help fund community-based clinics that are working hard to fill the gaps in dental coverage and access.
Dental Health for All™ works.
Over the last ten years:
- $1,000,000 in funding has been provided to more than 35 school- and community-based dental clinics to increase patient capacity and improve or expand their patient services.
- Over 200,000 additional annual patient visits have been made possible.
- More than 1 million tubes of free toothpaste have been distributed.
