Effingham, IL (PRWEB) March 31, 2016
Heartland Dental, LLC, the largest dental support organization in the country, is serving as a platinum sponsor for the eleventh annual Dental Charity Ball benefiting the Dental Charity Foundation. The Dental Charity Ball will be held Saturday, April 2nd at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois.
“Heartland Dental is continually searching for ways to give back to the dental community as a whole and contribute to helping those in need,” explained Rick Workman, DMD, Heartland Dental founder and active executive chairman. “The 2016 Dental Charity Ball is a great opportunity to do just that. Each year, they raise funds to help promote oral health education and charitable dental care.”
Started in 1996, the Dental Charity Ball is an annual celebration and charitable fundraiser to help support the under-served. It is run entirely by student volunteers. The proceeds from the ball support the Dental Charity Foundation, an organization that promotes oral health education and charitable dental care with a focus on pediatric and student-led causes. The annual Dental Charity Ball is the rallying point for fundraising by the foundation’s volunteers. This event is open to dental professionals, faculty, students and their guests. Funds are raised through a silent auction, as well as corporate and private donations.
“According to the ADA, more than 181 million Americans did not visit a dentist in 2014 and more than 47 million people live in places where it is difficult to access dental care. Despite technological advances, dental disease is still a prevalent issue across the country, especially for children,” added Dr. Rick Workman. “We are excited to aid the Dental Charity Foundation in their mission to change this.”
