Online dental auction will benefit preventive services for children
America’s ToothFairy has launched its 6th annual online charity auction. Bid For Smiles will run from March 20 to 27. Dental products and equipment will be available for bid at deep discounts. Proceeds raised will go to preventive service programs to help kids in need prevent tooth decay.
“The dental community always rallies around this event, not only because of the cost savings but also because it supports such an important cause,” said Jill Malmgren, executive director of America’s ToothFairy. “Every bid brings a smile — for everyone involved. Our donors get to invest in a cause that supports children’s oral health while showcasing their products to potential customers; our bidders save on supplies and equipment that they need anyway; and the nonprofit clinics we support get more resources to serve more children.”
To participate, bidders can register online at BidForSmiles.org any time before the auction ends.
In addition, all participants this year will receive an exclusive discount worth $350 off a purchase of any autoclave from Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions plus 5 percent off any quarterly preventive maintenance kits for autoclaves during 2020.
