Tom's of Maine Invites Everyone to Start the New Year by Helping Families in Need
Date:1/13/2009

KENNEBUNK, Maine, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The new year brings a challenging economy but Tom's of Maine is keeping its steadfast commitment to community programs. This month, the company launches Dental Health for All, an initiative that brings everyday Americans and local communities together with Tom's of Maine to help create greater access to dental care for families in need.

Over the past four years, the program has contributed to nearly 60,000 new annual dental visits and awarded significant grants to 25 school and community-based dental clinics to increase and improve patient capacity and help support facility expansion projects.

"It's hard for a parent to imagine not being able to take their child for a routine dental check-up, but for the nearly half of American families without dental insurance or access to dental care this is an unfortunate reality," said Kerry Maguire, D.D.S., M.S.P.H. and Tom's Director of Professional of Advocacy. "It may seem like an overwhelming problem but Tom's of Maine truly believes we can work together to make a difference, one small step at a time."

In January, Tom's of Maine will donate a portion of its sales for all products towards Dental Health for All and will award dental clinics across the country grants for oral health projects in February. With each purchase, families can enjoy their same favorite products or try natural oral care for the first time and have it benefit not only their family but a family in need of dental health.
