Pittston, PA (PRWEB) April 09, 2012
Benco Dental is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Keep A Breast Foundation™ (KAB), a group whose mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection, and support.
Benco Dental customers can now purchase natural extensions® Earloop Masks and Nitrile Plus Gloves in bright fuchsia and a donation will be made to KAB.
“KAB’s approach to breast cancer awareness is fresh and creative,” said Rick Cohen, managing director of Benco Dental. “This partnership offers our customers the opportunity to participate in a cause that matters to them, while introducing KAB to the dental profession.”
Teaming up with Benco is a natural fit for KAB.
“Last February, the British Dental Health Foundation released a report from Sweden evaluating 3,000 patients; women with tooth loss or gum disease were 11 times more likely to develop breast cancer,” explained Shaney Jo Darden, founder of KAB. “Our partnership with Benco is an opportunity to shed light on what you can do to dentally lower your risk.”
