America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation® and Patterson Dental, St Paul, Minn, have teamed up to raise money to expand the foundation’s educational and treatment programs for at-risk children.
During the months of May and June, Patterson Dental will donate a percentage of product sales highlighted in its current Sparkle product catalog—specifically, those products in the designated blue section (pages 35 to 39).
Patterson Dental first sponsored the Sparkle campaign benefiting America’s ToothFairy in 2013. Since then, nearly $42,000 has been raised from 20 participating companies. With a goal to “make dentistry fun” for young patients, Sparkle is distributed to 167,000 dental professionals.
“Patterson Dental is proud to support America’s ToothFairy and rally its corporate partners to support education and care for at-risk children through this Sparkle campaign,” said Paul Guggenheim, president of Patterson Dental. “We encourage dental professionals to embrace this important cause and support companies and products that make a tangible difference in the lives of children in need.”
Companies participating in this year’s campaign include Beesure, Centrix Inc, Certol International, Cranberry, DentalEZ Integrated Solutions, Ivoclar Vivadent, Kerr Corp, Mydent International, Premier® Dental Products Co, Pulpdent Corp, SDI (North America) Inc, Septodont, SS White Dental, and Whip Mix Corp.
“We are very grateful to Patterson Dental and all participating companies for their generous contributions to this annual effort,” said Fern Ingber, America’s ToothFairy President and CEO. “By taking part in the Sparkle campaign, these companies demonstrate their commitment to caring for at-risk children and building healthier communities.”
