A local Des Moines dentist participates in a charitable cause to collect oral care products and donate to at-risk children in the area.

Plaza Dental Group, a Des Moines dentist practice, will participate in the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive, a national campaign to collect oral care products for at-risk children and raise awareness of the importance of oral health. The Smile Drive will be held throughout February during National Children’s Dental Health Month.

Dr. Steffany Mohan and her team will be donating oral care products to the Smile Drive. Donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and rinse will personally be delivered to local at-risk children in Des Moines.

“It’s very important to us at Plaza Dental to give back to the community, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be using my skills as a dentist to help children smile with America’s Toothfairy,” said Dr. Steffany Mohan. This will be the first year that Plaza Dental will participate in this special cause.

“We are so grateful that caring dental professionals across the country are helping to ensure children receive the oral care products they need through the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive,” said Fern Ingber, America’s ToothFairy President and CEO. “The participation of Dr. Steffany Mohan and Plaza Dental in the Smile Drive will help promote healthy smiles for local children while providing at-risk youth the tools they need to prevent the pain and embarrassment associated with tooth decay.”
