Tom's of Maine began the Dental Health for All(TM) program in 2004 in response to the Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health. The study found that over 120 million Americans have no dental insurance and can wait over 12 months for an appointment at a public dental clinic. In addition, many millions more have trouble obtaining the dental care they need because they can't afford it or because they live in underserved areas where dentists are scarce or nonexistent.

To do something positive in the face of this public health issue, Tom's of Maine began the Dental Health for All(TM) program with two goals:

-- to increase access to dental care

-- to educate the population about the link between oral and overall

health

Since its inception, the program -- with great help from retailers and consumers -- has made a significant impact, providing over $770,000 to public dental clinics and helping tens of thousands of people in need receive quality, affordable dental care.
