Tom's of Maine, a maker of natural personal care products, is encouraging the public to go online and vote to help determine which five U.S. dental clinics will split $100,000 in funding as part of the company's annual Dental Health For All program.
The program awards $20,000 each to the five clinics that make the biggest difference in their communities by offering inexpensive dental care to low-income families.
"Given the current economic situation, more and more families are dependent upon their local non-profit clinics for quality, low-cost dental care," said Kate Bussell at Tom's of Maine.
"That is why it is so important that these clinics receive adequate funding so they can continue to play a vital role in their communities," she added.
Tom's of Maine has nominated 16 dental clinics based on the positive impact they have on their community. The public can go online and watch videos about each clinic's inspiring efforts and vote on who they think is most deserving of the funding. Winners will be announced in April 2010.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice daily and frequently visiting a dentist to avoid dental health problems.
