Dentsply Sirona Partners with A Night for Smiles and Asks for your Participation

 


There is no doubt in my mind that dentistry has a big heart.  Every year there are large charitable events where doctors and staff give of their time and expertise to help those in the public who cannot afford care.  These events are 100% free to patients and are are generously created through the giving of clinical providers.  However, providers are only one part of a large care giving system.  These events wouldn't be possible without the donations and efforts of companies that manufacture and distribute dental supplies.

I'm so impressed with those who not only donate their time to these events, but also to the companies who so generously provide the needed supplies to help these patients.

Dentsply Sirona has partnered with the Charlotte-based non-profit organization, A Night for Smiles, whose sole purpose is to raise money to provide free dental care to those in financial need within the local community. This year’s A Night for Smiles event supports The Kenneth D. Owen, North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) – Charlotte Chapter. Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies, is a Diamond Sponsor of this initiative.


Charlotte/Salzburg, 30 July 2019. On Saturday, September 14, 2019, A Night for Smiles will host its second annual Black Tie Gala to benefit The Kenneth D. Owen North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) – Charlotte Chapter (www.ncmom-charlotte.com). NCMOM is a grass roots effort, dependent entirely on volunteers, including dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and scores of general volunteers, who donate their time and talents. It also depends on funding from charitable organizations, civic organizations, private corporate and personal donations as well as grants.

Dentsply Sirona is pleased to support the Charlotte community by supporting this outstanding organization. While the donations collected help significantly, they are not sufficient to address the dental healthcare needs of the entire local community in Charlotte. The goal of the next clinic is to provide free dental treatment to at least 2,500 qualifying adults. The clinic will be staffed by volunteers from all parts of dentistry as well as other healthcare professionals and general volunteers from Charlotte and across the state and will showcase NCMOM’s portable outreach program of the North Carolina Dental Society. The next clinic will take place at the Bojangles Arena on October 18-19, 2019.

If you are interested in supporting this great initiative with Dentsply Sirona and others, you can obtain more information at:https://anightforsmiles.org/ and have the possibility to donate directly.
100% of contributions will go toward our recipient, NCMOM-Charlotte.
