Year: 
2016

“At SmileConnect℠, we believe that a transformational change is needed in the fight against children’s tooth decay, and have confidence in the power of our social networking solution, SmileConnect℠, to create a new pathway for this change,” said Haley McDermott, philanthropic outreach coordinator, Center for Implementation Science at Altarum Institute. “However, we need help to demonstrate the power of this innovative solution outside of Michigan. The award from DTA Foundation gives us the chance to do just that. With DTA Foundation’s support, we can improve oral health for children across the US by helping them access the preventative oral health supplies they need, where they need them most: in their communities.”
