National TeamSmile Partners
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. Read More
As the world leader in oral care, Colgate is committed to improving children’s oral health around the world and we are a proud sponsor and supporter of TeamSmile since the initial Kansas City Program in 2007. One of our core values as a corporation is Caring and Giving Back to our Communities and as such we have strategically aligned ourselves with organizations that share these same values. Opportunity to provide treatment to several thousand children each year through TeamSmile Programs in coordination with Dental Professionals, Volunteers and Sports team allows us to teach the importance of oral health care as well as help children form healthy habits that will last a lifetime. It is our partnership with community programs, such as TeamSmile, that helps make the world a healthier, happier place to live one smile at a time.
We know oral health is essential to every person’s total health and well-being. Yet, millions across America – and too many children – suffer from the social and economic consequences of preventable dental disease every day. DentaQuest is partnering with TeamSmile and its community of dentists, parents, and community leaders to make sure at-risk kids get quality care that will keep them in school, pain free and healthy. As a purpose-driven company, we work to prioritize health in our communities. This collaboration with TeamSmile is helping us meet that goal.
