Donation will assist with education of youth about proper oral care.

NEWPORT BEACH, California--Ron Coss has donated his invention, the VibraJect R3, to Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County.

The VibraJect R3 is a vibrating dental syringe attachment designed to reduce and eliminate the pain associated with dental injections.

This product makes patients more comfortable and eliminates the fear of injections while bringing a great deal of emotional relief to the unusually pain sensitive and needle-phobic patient. It also eliminates the need to use a topical anesthetic to eliminate pain.

Consequently, it eliminates the annoyance of the bitter after taste patients experience from topical anesthetic.

"Healthy Smiles for Kids is doing an excellent job of educating the youth of Orange County about the importance of proper oral care," said Coss.

"It is estimated that over 50 percent of the population does not seek dental care, mainly due to fear. Since the number one stated fear is the "shot", I felt it would be an added benefit to the organization if they had the ability to eliminate any possible fears and stigmas surrounding dental injections for the kids they treat by utilizing the VibraJect R3," he continued. "It gives me great pleasure to support Healthy Smiles with my donation and to be able to contribute to this worthy cause."

Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County is a non-profit organization whose vision is to improve the oral health of children in Orange County and to integrate oral health into the primary care of children. The organization believes this can be achieved through collaborations directed at prevention, education, treatment, and advocacy.

It is Healthy Smiles' vision and goal that through these collaborations and partnerships, the Children of Orange County will be provided with improved oral health through a multi-faceted program of prevention education, early identification of caries, nutritional guidance, education of health care providers with the goal of integrating oral health into the primary care model of medicine, facilitating safety net and community providers to increase their capacity to see children and to see them in a culturally appropriate manner, providing treatment services where there are gaps in care, and advocating for increased access to treatment services for all children.
