On Thursday, Tom's of Maine revealed the five clinics that have each been awarded $20,000 as part of the dental care product manufacturer's Dental Health for All program, which is an annual initiative that celebrates the generosity of non-profit, community-based organizations.
The five winning dental clinics were determined through an online public vote, based on which organization made the biggest difference in their communities by offering inexpensive dental care to low-income families. This marks the first year that the awardees were chosen by consumers.
"Every day millions of Americans go without proper, quality dental care because they simply can't afford it," said Susan Dewhirst, goodness programs manager at Tom's of Maine.
"Tom's of Main's continued investment in Dental Health for All aims to make up for some of those funding losses so clinics can continue to provide critical services to the communities," she added.
Those awarded the project scholarships include a clinic that provides dental care to the homeless and another that offers low-cost restorative procedures to families experiencing a demonstrated financial hardship.
