GC America, Alsip, Ill, announced it will become an underwriting partner of America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. The company’s support will be used to expand delivery of oral health educational, preventative, and treatment services for at-risk children and youth across the country.
The partnership will kick off with a special promotion for dental hygienists attending RDH Under One Roof in Maryland from July 28 to 30, 2016.
