CHARLOTTE, N.C., USA: Over 50,000 children will receive critical oral health services this year, thanks in part to grant funding from National Children’s Oral Health Foundation: America’s ToothFairy (NCOHF). America’s ToothFairy grants in the amount of $10,000 were awarded to several pediatric programs delivering comprehensive educational, preventive and treatment services for at-risk children.

Combined, these recipients of the America’s ToothFairy grants reach over 50,000 children annually and include:

  • KinderSmile Foundation in Upper Montclair, N.J.
  • Dignity Health — Chandler Regional Medical Center in Chandler, Ariz.
  • University of New Mexico, Division of Dental Hygiene, in Albuquerque, N.M.
  • Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in Richmond, Va.
  • Community Dental Foundation in Phoenix.

“We are proud to support our NCOHF Affiliate partners in the fight against pediatric dental disease,” commented Fern Ingber, NCOHF President and CEO. “NCOHF supporters help make these America’s ToothFairy grants possible. Their generous contributions enable us to help give at-risk children the building blocks they need for happy, healthy futures.”

National Children’s Oral Health Foundation, known as America’s ToothFairy, was formed in 2006 in an aggressive response to eliminate pediatric dental disease by providing community programs with the comprehensive resources to deliver vital educational, preventive, and treatment services to children of the most vulnerable populations. Supporting the delivery of oral health education and care beginning at the prenatal level, NCOHF: America’s ToothFairy has reached millions of children through its national non-profit clinical network and volunteer professional and student community service programs.
