which allows them to further their mission of changing lives by
providing communities across the country access to quality dental care.
I would like to thank our team at Patterson for giving their time and
talent to support Oral Health America through a number of activities."

impact in our communities as we do today. Patterson is a key partner in
our endeavors, and we are very thankful for their support over the
