Bringing Dental Care to Children Around the Globe.

Denver-based organizations Confadent Oral Technology and Global Dental Relief recently announced a new three-year commitment to provide preventive fluoride treatments to children around the globe. Caring for teeth during childhood is the cornerstone to good oral health as an adult. Global Dental Relief provides first-time and ongoing dental care to children who otherwise lack the access or resources for care. The partnership will allow Global Dental Relief to provide 1,000 fluoride treatments to children each year, continuing to grow and expand services to the communities in which the organization is active, including Nepal, India, Guatemala, Kenya, and Cambodia.

Confadent Oral Technology offers an oral care product in the form of chewing gum that is formulated to help reduce the bacteria that causes plaque and gingivitis, whiten one's teeth, and maintain a fresh peppermint flavor for a substantial time period. Global Dental Relief is a 501 (c)3 charitable organization established in 2001 to provide free dental care and oral health education to impoverished children and families. The organization hosts volunteers in 20 clinics each year.
