Tooth decay is the most common chronic untreated disease among children in the U.S., but thanks to a generous product contribution from Septodont, thousands of children will receive preventive sealants to protect their smiles from the devastating consequences of tooth decay.
Over $75,000 in Toothfairy™ Pit & Fissure Sealants were donated by Septodont to America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF). The product donation was distributed to ten nonprofit clinics to support preventive services for children in need.
“It is essential that nonprofit clinics have the necessary resources such as Toothfairy Pit & Fissure Sealant in order to provide preventive services for underserved youth,” said Paul Mondock, Septodont President of the Americas and NCOHF Board Member. “By partnering with America’s ToothFairy to meet this need, Septodont was able to support programs reaching over 118,000 underserved children across five states.”
“We rely on donations received through our partnership with NCOHF to provide dental care for children living in economic despair,” commented Dirk Alvarado of the Sonrisas Dental Health, Inc. in Half Moon Bay, CA, a donation recipient. “This donation of Toothfairy Pit & Fissure Sealant from Septodont will help us improve oral health outcomes for the children we serve.”
“We are very grateful to Septodont for their generosity and continued support of our mission and our nonprofit clinical partners,” said Jill Malmgren, NCOHF Executive Director. “We are focused on access to care, prevention and education. This sealant donation will help our member clinics provide essential dental care for low-income families and prevent future oral health issues for many children.”
