Delta Dental Companies is encouraging Facebook users to take up the fight to help thousands of your uninsured citizens get the dental treatment they need. It’s easy to help. For each person who joins the cause, Delta Dental is donating one dollar and matching donations up to $100,000. To date they have raised more than $41,000! To help get dental treatment and care for under served citizens, go to: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/592898.
Sherri Schneider, DDS, who practices in Hatboro, PA says of this initiative, “Oral hygiene, preventative dentistry and dental treatment can be expensive and for millions of Americans, unaffordable. It is great to see a large dental insurance company helping out those in need.”
Funds raised from the campaign by Delta Dental will be used to purchase mobile equipment needed to provide dental care to under served patients in 17 states across the country, served by the non-profit charity dental clinics of America’s Dentists Care Foundation and America’s Missions of Mercy (MOM). Since the first MOM events in 2000, dental volunteers have provided care to more than 100,000 people.
