CHARLOTTE, North Carolina--More children are being served by the National Children's Oral Health Foundation thanks to a generous donation of dental products from GC America, Inc.

NCOHF draws on national resources to secure and distribute product and financial donations to nonprofit community-based dental centers, stand-alone clinics, universities and mobile programs across the country so that millions of at-risk children can receive quality comprehensive oral health services.

"We are extremely grateful for the support of GC America, which recently made a generous donation of valuable dental products," said Fern Ingber, NCOHF president and CEO. "NCOHF Affiliates from California to North Carolina, including the University of California at San Francisco, Howard University, the Medical College of Georgia, Community Health Services at Charlotte, N.C., and other nonprofit oral health providers are using these valuable products to serve our nation's most economically disadvantaged children. These products are even serving children in Puerto Rico through one of NCOHF's newest affiliates, the University of Puerto Rico."

"GC America's mission is to provide products that are integral to the practice of minimal intervention dentistry," said David Allen, GC America's president and COO. "We are proud to support NCOHF's efforts to eliminate children's needless pain and suffering by sharing our products with those who need them most."
