Why Bank of the West is a sponsor and advocate of TeamSmile After experiencing the 2012 TeamSmile event with the Kansas City Chiefs the desire to become a sponsor, a volunteer and an advocate for TeamSmile was born. The opportunity to partner with an organization to make a direct and immediate impact in the lives of children and families in so many of the markets that Bank of the West serves has created a tremendous relationship between the local leaders of TeamSmile and Bank of the West. Since TeamSmile’s founding in 2007,the health and wellness of thousands of children and families have been improved and we thank Co-Founder Dr. William Busch and Executive Director Kellie Reneau for the opportunity to be partners. Bank of the West is excited about the future of TeamSmile and our relationship.

Why Midmark supports TeamSmile TeamSmile is an organization that is all about one thing – providing life-changing dental care to underserved children. It does this with a purpose-driven focus that is rare and hard to find in organizations. TeamSmile provides this care by partnering with professional sports organizations, and in TeamSmile’s world – we all win. From the dental clinicians who provide the care, to the support staff who work so hard to set it up and take it to the next town, to the sports organizations who put their name on such an amazing event, and, most importantly, to the children who would not otherwise receive this kind of dental care. Oral care is more critical today than ever – it is linked to our overall wellness in undisputed ways. Getting underserved children to understand the importance of oral care, and to provide initial care that sets them on the path for better habits and better health, and do it all at an event that is intensely focused and completely unique – is why Midmark is proud to support TeamSmile.

In 2006, Henry Schein was at the ground floor of the evolution of TeamSmile. Dr. William Busch came up with a concept of helping area children receive free dental care utilizing local professional sports teams. Henry Schein, along with other oral health companies and dental professionals, worked together to organize a program with the Kansas City Chiefs that would provide dental care to underserved children with the helpful impact of professional sports franchises, their players, their venues, their mascots, and their cheerleaders. The idea has taken off and to date we have helped give access of $4,300,000 worth of free preventative and treatment to more than 6,000 kids in over 15 cities across the U.S.
As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, through our Corporate Social Responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares, it is our mission to give back to communities that lack the resources needed to deliver quality health care. Henry Schein’s role in support of TeamSmile programs is to help recruit the dental volunteers that provide the complimentary oral health assessments, dental services and instruction to underserved children, as well as providing area children with treatment and instruction in a fun environment while promoting the significance of good dental hygiene. Henry Schein also donates a significant amount of the necessary consumables for the program, as well as the transportation of equipment and a team of technicians for each programs.
