The program' mission is to help deliver dental care and prevention services to underserved children and promote oral health in communities.
OHA President and CEO Beth Truett announced the joint fundraising campaign, called A Future to Smile About, at the OHA Gala & Benefit in Chicago on February 25.
Through the campaign, Patterson Dental and AADOM will each donate $50 to OHA for every AADOM annual membership purchased by dental practices from February 25, 2015, through January 31, 2016.
"Oral Health America's devotion to helping youth who face barriers to receiving dental care and prevention services is critical," stated Tim Rogan, Patterson's vice presidents of marketing and merchandise. "Patterson Dental is excited to work with AADOM and dental practices nationwide to help propel OHA's efforts."
"As practitioners give the gift of continuing education, practice management resources and networking opportunities to their office manager or business teams through AADOM memberships, they're also giving the gift of oral health and teaching prevention skills that our youth will have for life."
