GC America is now an underwriting partner with America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. The company’s support will be used to expand the delivery of oral health educational, preventive, and treatment services for at-risk children and youth across the country.
The partnership will launch with a special promotion for dental hygienists attending RDH Under One Roof in Maryland, July 28-30. Dental hygienists who commit to joining the America’s ToothFairy Esther Wilkins Education Program will receive special incentives from GC America.
Established with a founding gift from dentist and dental hygienist Esther Wilkins, RDH, DMD, the Esther Wilkins Education Program supports the role of dental hygienists and dental hygiene students as oral health champions by providing educational tools for their community outreach activities.
“GC America is proud to support America’s ToothFairy and its valuable efforts to improve children’s health and well-being,” said Steve Fletcher, president and chief operating officer of GC America and a new member of the America’s ToothFairy Board of Directors.
“We look forward to a valuable partnership that positively impacts the lives of vulnerable children and helps build healthier communities in the places where our customers live and work,” Fletcher said.
“We are very grateful to GC America for their generous support for our smile-saving programs,” said Fern Ingber, America’s ToothFairy president and chief executive officer. “By joining America’s ToothFairy as an underwriting partner, GC America demonstrates its strong corporate commitment to enhancing community oral health.”
