Indiana University School of Dentistry receives grant
National Children’s Oral Health Foundation: America’s ToothFairy (NCOHF) has awarded a grant to the Indiana University School of Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry Department (IUSD). Totaling $10,000, this grant will support the efforts of IUSD to provide comprehensive oral health services and education to thousands of children in need.

The grant was made possible with funding from SurgiTel, a loupe and headlight supplier.

“This wonderful donation from SurgiTel means that we can provide comprehensive dental care and oral health education for many more children who have no dental insurance and are living in families with low incomes,” said Joan Kowolik, BDS, LDS, RSC, IU’s director of predoctoral pediatric dentistry. “We greatly appreciate NCOHF: America’s ToothFairy for making this donation available to us and all the foundation has done for us and our patients. As we continue to work together we will strive to improve the oral health of the children of Indiana.”

“SurgiTel is proud to support the NCOHF Affiliate Network and their tireless dedication to ensuring that at-risk children receive vital oral health services,” said B. J. Chang, PhD, SurgiTel president and CEO. “As an annual supporter of NCOHF: America’s ToothFairy since 2006, we are committed to the cause and this great organization helping children in need.”

Named the NCOHF Affiliate of the Year in early 2012, IUSD actively participates in NCOHF programs such as Tomorrow’s SMILES, Students United for America’s ToothFairy and Trick or Treat for America’s ToothFairy to reach more at-risk youth with critical oral health services.

“The generous contribution from SurgiTel has made it possible for NCOHF to recognize and support the noble efforts of the faculty and students of Indiana University School of Dentistry,” remarked Fern Ingber, NCOHF President and CEO. “We applaud their commitment to improve oral health for children in their community.”
