- Dental Health for All(TM) sponsorships surmount $770,000 and helped
provide over 70,000 visits for dental care since 2004 -
KENNEBUNK, Maine, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Tom's of Maine, a leader in natural personal care products, marks the fifth year of its Dental Health for All(TM) program by awarding over $108,000 in sponsorship to community dental health programs in seven states across the country. Total support for dental clinics since 2004 is now more than $770,000 and has helped clinics provide an estimated 70,000 additional visits to gain access to quality, affordable dental care.
Tom Chappell, cofounder and CEO of Tom's of Maine, announced the
sponsorships, stating, "We continue to see studies indicating the enormous
need for access to dental care throughout the United States and thus we're
very pleased to mark our 5th year of Dental Health for All(TM). We are
encouraged by the support and energy around dental needs shown by our
consumers and retail partners who help make these grants possible. Although
these clinics are very different in some ways, just like Tom's of Maine,
they all share a mission-driven focus of bringing quality dental and oral
health care to people in need and thus will receive sponsorship for
construction of new dental clinics, funding more dental hygienists, and
purchasing X-ray systems."
