Star Group is partnering with the Sacramento District Dental Society (SDDS) Foundation and the California Dental Association (CDA) Foundation to support the Crowns for Kids program.
Crowns for Kids enables dentists to support philanthropic efforts in their communities by participating in the SDDS Foundation's Smiles for Kids local program and the CDA Foundation's statewide program. Money raised from donations of gold fillings and crowns helps support oral health projects for underserved children that focus on preventive care, consumer education, restorative care, and fluoridation.
Star Group will:
- Provide each dentist with a specially-labeled jar to collect extracted and donated gold fillings and crowns from patients
- Make regular collection visits to each participating dentist to pick up jars and drop off new ones
- Process the reclamation of donated fillings and crowns and send the cash value of the dentist's donations directly to the SDDS Foundation and the CDA Foundation
