Ultradent Ups Its Pledge to Hurricane Harvey Relief - Now Donating $250,000

Wow!  I’ve been blogging here for years and in all that time I’ve never felt the need to post about the same company two days in a row.  However, today is the day I double up on posts about Ultradent, and with very good reason.  It seems that every day this week, we’ve been faced with more and more bad news from Hurricane Harvey.  To help battle the tragedy, yesterday morning I posted news that Ultradent was donating $50,000 to help those affected by the disaster.  I thought that was incredibly generous and felt my readers needed to know about it.
Then, late yesterday afternoon I received word that Ultradent had decided to *quintuple* their donation to $250,000!!!

Talk about generosity!  These people have got their priorities straight and their collective hearts in the right place!  Here is all of the info from their press release:

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, August 30, 2017 UPDATE: In response to the catastrophic devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, Ultradent Products, Inc. has upped its donation to the Saint Bernard Project (SBP)  from $50,000 to $250,000 as damages from the storm continue to devastate the communities in its path. The Saint Bernard project will use the funds to aid in the rescue, relief, and rebuilding efforts of all those affected by the storm. Additionally, Ultradent is launching a discount program to help dentists whose practices have been damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Beginning Monday, August 28, 2017, Ultradent will offer dentists negatively affected by Hurricane Harvey $500 worth of free product, with 40% off all consumable products and 15% off all equipment purchases exceeding the initial $500, in the hopes of providing some aid in the rebuilding efforts of the dental community. 

Ultradent’s president, Dirk Jeffs, says, “Hurricane Harvey, with its wind and flooding, has caused unprecedented, catastrophic damage in Texas. Care is an important core value at Ultradent, and we want to extend a helping hand and show our care for the people who have been affected by this devastating storm.”

Ultradent has a strong culture of giving. The company contributed to relief efforts associated with the Pulse Nightclub shooting, Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Sandy, and the earthquakes in Haiti and Ecuador. Additionally, Ultradent donates over 1.6 million pounds of food over the past nine years to the Utah Food Bank. Ultradent also contributes to various national and international dental humanitarian missions. To find out more about Ultradent’s disaster relief efforts, please visit
