March 6, 2015
Septodont has donated  $240,000 worth of Toothfairy BPA-Free Pit & Fissure Sealant Kits to help serve vulnerable children across the country.

Septodont has made a generous product donation worth nearly $240,000 to America's ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. This donation of Toothfairy BPA-Free Pit & Fissure Sealant Kits will be distributed to the America's ToothFairy Affiliate Network of nonprofit clinics and programs providing vital oral health services to vulnerable children across the country.

Dena Locklear, program manager at FirstHealth of the Carolina’s Dental Care Centers (an America's ToothFairy Affiliate in Southern Pines, North Carolina) said that sealant donations make a signicant impact in their ability to provide preventive care to local children. "As a public health practice that treats low-income children, we provide a large number of preventive dental sealants," Ms. Locklear said. "The donation from Septodont has allowed us to provide this critical preventive service at no cost for underserved kids who need it most. We cannot adequately express in words our deep gratitude for the Toothfairy sealant donation!"

"Septodont is committed to providing the America's ToothFairy Affiliate Network the products and support they need to provide high-quality care to underserved children and their families," said Paul Mondock, Septodont vice president for the Americas. "We are pleased to provide this donation of Toothfairy BPA Free Pit & Fissure Sealant Kits to help children maintain healthy smiles."

“We are very grateful to Septodont, an America's ToothFairy Underwriter, for their commitment to the health and wellness of vulnerable children and their families,” said Fern Ingber, America's ToothFairy president and CEO. “This generous donation of ToothFairy sealants will ensure thousands of children receive the critical preventive services they need to protect their oral health."
