Children's oral health group partners with Pankey Institute

National Children's Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) and The Pankey Institute have formed a partnership to provide volunteer dental services to promising at-risk teens and underserved children throughout the United States through the America's Toothfairy Dental Home and Tomorrow's SMILES programs.

Through this partnership, Pankey Institute volunteer dental professionals will provide comprehensive restorative and aesthetic treatment for at-risk students while educating them about the importance of good oral health and maintaining healthy smiles, the organizations said in a press release. In return, Tomorrow's SMILES students share these lessons with elementary school children through the program's Pay-It-Forward component, ensuring that good oral hygiene habits are instilled early in a child's life.

Through the America's Toothfairy Dental Home program, Pankey members across the country will adopt the care of underserved children in their area and give them a "dental home." Volunteer dental professionals donate oral health care to children in need, providing the building blocks necessary to ensure proper oral health practices and increased opportunities for future success
