Patterson Dental and American Association of Dental Office Managers Launch Oral Health America Giving Campaign
"A Future to Smile About" introduced at Oral Health America Gala
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Patterson Dental and the American Association of Dental Office Managers
(AADOM) have launched a yearlong initiative to raise funds for Oral
Health America's (OHA) Smiles Across America® (SAA) program.
SAA's mission is to help deliver dental care and prevention services to
underserved children and promote oral health in communities.
OHA President and CEO Beth Truett announced the joint fundraising
campaign, called "A Future to Smile About," at the 25th OHA
Gala & Benefit in Chicago on February 25. Gala attendees also celebrated
OHA's 60 years of improving oral health.
Through "A Future to Smile About," Patterson Dental and AADOM will each
donate $50 to OHA for every AADOM annual membership purchased by dental
practices from February 25, 2015 through January 31, 2016. Patterson
Dental Vice President of Marketing, Merchandise Tim Rogan commented,
"Oral Health America's devotion to helping youth who face barriers to
receiving dental care and prevention services is critical. Patterson
Dental is excited to work with AADOM and dental practices nationwide to
help propel OHA's efforts. We also celebrate and thank OHA for their 60
years of work improving access to oral health care and education."
Rogan noted that through "A Future to Smile About," dental practices
have a unique opportunity to give back to their industry while also
benefiting their dental teams. "As practitioners give the gift of
continuing education, practice management resources and networking
opportunities to their office manager or business teams through AADOM
memberships, they're also giving the gift of oral health and teaching
prevention skills that our youth will have for life."
At last year's event, Patterson Companies was recognized for providing
over $1 million in cash contributions to OHA, along with in-kind
donations such as products, printing services and delivery of OHA
campaign materials to Patterson Dental customers.
Dental teams interested in purchasing AADOM memberships may easily do so
which features complete campaign information. Using the promotion code
"OHA15" will ensure the membership is counted as part of the fundraising
campaign. Patterson Dental will be driving support for "A Future to
Smile About" through multiple media channels all year.
Through the financial support of Patterson, AADOM and many others,
Smiles Across America® reaches over 460,000 children each
year in schools and school-based settings.
