PHILADELPHIA, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Christopher's Foundation for Children (SCFC) will celebrate the Foundation's Ronald McDonald Care Mobile Dental Program during the fifth annual Apple Blossom Ball fundraiser on May 14, 2009. Since its inception in 2001, the Foundation's dental program has provided free, quality dental care and treatment to thousands of uninsured or underinsured three-to-eight year olds throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region.

"We are fortunate to have such strong community partners that help make this program a success year after year," said Jan Shaeffer, executive director, St. Christopher's Foundation for Children. "Together, we are addressing head-on the growing epidemic of dental disease and decay affecting children and youth all across the Delaware Valley."

"Ronald McDonald House Charities and St. Christopher's Foundation for Children share a common mission to improve the lives of local children," said John Durante, president, Ronald McDonald House Charities(R) (RMHC(R)) of the Philadelphia Region, Inc. "We are proud to participate in the celebration of the program's success."

The mobile program visits more than 50 schools and treats over 2,500 children annually. The vehicle has two fully equipped dental chairs, three portable units, a qualified staff of pediatric dentists and hygienists, and a comprehensive educational program.

Each child is provided diagnostic, preventative and restorative dental care that includes examinations, cleanings, fluoride and sealant treatments, x-rays and fillings. The program is sponsored by grants from SCFC, the Philadelphia Healthcare Trust, Pennsylvania Department of Health, Verizon Foundation, Patricia Kind Foundation and RMHC of the Philadelphia Region, Inc., who will serve as the presenting sponsor of the Apple Blossom Ball.
