CHICAGO, Illinois—Oral Health America has been recognized by the West Virginia University Foundation and New York University College of Dentistry for donations to the Smiles Across America programs established through each university.

The Woodburn Circle Society at the WVU Foundation recognized OHA for donating $115,000 since 2006 to the SAA-West Virginia program, which now includes 28 partners throughout the state.

"We extend our sincere gratitude to Oral Health America for its generous support of the Smiles Across America program," said Wayne King, CFRE, president and CEO of the WVU Foundation.

"Such gifts help enable the university to fulfill its mission of public service and improve the general health and well-being of the public. We also congratulate Oral Health America on its recent induction into the Woodburn Circle Society, the foundation's highest level of donor recognition."

The NYU College of Dentistry recognized OHA for awarding grants of more than $100,000 to the college’s Department of Pediatric Dentistry, which oversees the SAA program in New York City schools.

“The NYU College of Dentistry is very pleased to recognize Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program for generous grants for improved pediatric dentistry outreach care,” said Dr. Charles Bertolami, dean of the NYU College of Dentistry. "In addition to financial assistance, Smiles Across America also provides organizational support and donated dental products for in-school oral health services, community outreach among dental and nursing students, and pediatric dentistry follow-up visits at the NYU College of Dentistry. We are extremely grateful to Oral Health America and Smiles Across America, and look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership.”
