Alpha Omega partners with NCOHF to enhance teens' oral health

The National Children's Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) and Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity (AO) have formed a partnership to give promising at-risk teens a brighter future through the NCOHF Tomorrow's Smiles program.

Tomorrow's Smiles was created and initially funded by a gift from Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS, a Medical College of Georgia clinical professor.

Through this partnership, AO is leading recruitment efforts to assemble volunteer Tomorrow's Smiles clinicians among its members and their colleagues. In addition to providing comprehensive restorative functional and esthetic treatment for students without the financial means to pay for the services, AO volunteer dental professionals educate students about the importance of good oral health.

In return, the students share these lessons with elementary school children, ensuring that good oral hygiene habits are instilled early in a child's life.

"Alpha Omega is proud to offer our members a significant opportunity to underscore their dedication to community service through our partnership with NCOHF," said Daniel Uditsky, DDS, AO international president, in a press release. "By assuming a national leadership role in the innovative Tomorrow's Smiles program, Alpha Omega members are able to provide life-changing, comprehensive oral health services and directly impact the next generation of dental consumers."
