Pediatric dental disease, dubbed “the silent epidemic” by the U.S. Surgeon General, results in over 51 million hours of lost school time each year, puts children at risk for other serious health conditions, and can harm their self-esteem.
“3M ESPE is dedicated to helping children stay healthy and feel better about themselves,” said Tim McGlynn, 3M ESPE marketing manager. “Partnering with NCOHF in this eco-friendly initiative allows us to provide oral care for children in need and helps us ensure a cleaner environment for their future.”
"We are honored that 3M ESPE chose NCOHF as the charitable beneficiary of this creative initiative to improve the health of American children in need while addressing environmental concerns," said Fern Ingber, NCOHF president and CEO. "In our challenging economy, generous donations of dental products are critical for delivery of life-changing services provided by NCOHF Affiliate partners to at-risk children."
NCOHF is a nonprofit group dedicated to eliminating preventable pediatric dental disease. The organization supports direct delivery of oral health restorative, educational, and preventive programs for underserved youth through a national Affiliate network of not-for-profit university and community-based dental programs. NCOHF has helped more than one million children receive comprehensive care since its founding in 2006.
