CHICAGO, December 7 – Oral Health America (OHA) strives to change lives by connecting communities with much needed oral health resources. Through Smiles Across America®, OHA serves 460,000 children annually by supporting preventive oral healthcare in school-based or school-linked settings. With the Wisdom Tooth Project®, OHA aims to change the lives of older adults especially vulnerable to oral disease, and through our Campaign for Oral Health Equity, OHA leads the effort to promote the conversation on how improved oral health impacts overall health across the lifespan.
All of this work is done to help Americans of all ages attain a healthy mouth and to understand the importance of oral health for overall health. Oral Health America (OHA) is pleased to announce a generous gift from Safco in support of this important work.
“Safco is proud to support Oral Health America and their mission to change lives through better oral health,” said Ken Saffir, CEO and owner of Safco Dental Supply Co. “We’re pleased that our contribution will help fund programs designed to advocate for those most in need and increase awareness of the importance of oral health.”
OHA's mission is to change lives by connecting communities with resources to drive access to care, increase health literacy, and advocate for policies that improve overall health through better oral health for all Americans, especially those most vulnerable. Established in 1955, OHA is a national nonprofit that works to bring healthy mouths to life through a range of partnerships and programs across the country.
