For nonprofit dental clinics providing care to children at free and reduced rates, every penny counts. Millions of children across the U.S. struggle to access affordable dental care due to financial barriers and a shortage of dental care providers, especially those that accept state-funded dental coverage. For these kids, the safety-net clinics that serve them make a tremendous difference in their oral health.
Two such clinics, the KinderSmile Foundation in Bloomfield, New Jersey, and The Community Dental Center of Greater Los Angeles in California, recently received donated restorative products from Cosmedent totaling more than $159,000. Last year, these clinics, who are members of our Dental Resource Program, served a combined total of more than 7,000 kids. The donation was made to help them provide care to even more children in need in the months to come.
“We are very grateful for this wonderful donation,” said Dr. Michal Herman of the KinderSmile Foundation. “It will go a long way in enabling us to provide oral health care to underserved communities in New Jersey.”
We just had one of our best years for donated dental product distribution thanks in part to Cosmedent. Product donations help our program members free up resources to bring in more staff, extend their hours of operation, and provide quality restorative and preventive dental services to more kids who would otherwise go without. We are so grateful for generous companies like Cosmedent who continue to give year-over-year.
