School-based sealant programs, oral care product distributions, dental services for homeless children, these and other projects will receive a needed boost.
“Funding for the grants was donated by sponsors of the Virtual ToothFairy Ball and Online Auction, an annual fundraiser, and was awarded in the names of the donating individuals or companies. The recipients will use the funds to improve oral health outcomes for children through school-based sealant programs, oral care product distributions, dental services for homeless children, and other projects.”
Among them, a Benco Family Foundation ToothFairy Grant of $5,000 will support the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, Birmingham, Alabama
