Everyone Deserves to Smile
This year, AADOM lost a valued member, Christine B., FAADOM. When she passed, her family’s wishes were for donations to be made to her favorite charity which provides support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
In Chris’s honor, AADOM has partnered with the Smiles for Life Foundation…Opens a new window to the Smiles for Life website… to develop the Everyone Deserves to Smile campaign. Together we’re raising money to help bridge the critical gap in oral healthcare for people in this underserved population.
For each new member that joins AADOM by June 30th, up to $100* will be donated to fund special projects and help provide access to dental care for people with disabilities.
*For each new membership during the campaign, AADOM will donate $50, plus up to $50 will be donated through a matching program with our partners, CEDR HR Solutions, Henry Schein Dental, Lighthouse360, and Merchant Advocate.
Children and adults with intellectual disabilities are the most medically and dentally underserved population in this country and throughout the world. Access to receive oral health services are the number one health care problem they face.
