As many nonprofit dental clinics are struggling to get caught up after the COVID-19 shutdowns, and families across the country delay essential dental treatment due to financial difficulties, America’s ToothFairy has responded with a new campaign to help “Bring the Smiles Back.”
Throughout National Children’s Dental Health Month in February, America’s ToothFairy is running their More Smiles Campaign, an opportunity for dental professionals to give so that kids can get the restorative care they urgently need regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Proceeds will fund grants that support the direct care of pediatric patients from nonprofit dental clinics participating in America’sToothFairy programs.
With COVID guidelines making it harder for dental professionals to donate their time and skills during special charity dental events and limiting the number of patients that can be seen, this campaign provides an option which supports community nonprofit dental providers and helps keep underserved youth out of the emergency room due to dental pain and infections. Most grant awards range from$500 to $1,000.
“Patients who need these grants do not have the resources to cover all the expenses associated with the comprehensive services they need,” Jill Malmgren, Executive Director at America’s ToothFairy said. “Our grants serve as a bridge by overcoming these costs and obstacles to care. Contributing to this program provides an opportunity to give a child life-changing dental care while helping support the work of nonprofit dental clinics serving populations in need.”
