Tom’s of Maine Celebrates Fifth Year of Care Plan

May 5, 2008

Tom’s of Maine marked the fifth year of its Dental Health for All program by awarding over $108,000 in sponsorship to community dental health programs in seven states across the U.S.

Total support for dental clinics since 2004 is now more than $770,000 and has helped clinics provide an estimated 70,000 additional visits to gain access to quality, affordable dental care.

Tom Chappell, cofounder and CEO of Tom’s of Maine, said, “We continue to see studies indicating the enormous need for access to dental care throughout the United States and thus we’re very pleased to mark our fifth year of Dental Health for All. We are encouraged by the support and energy around dental needs shown by our consumers and retail partners who help make these grants possible.

“Although these clinics are very different in some ways, just like Tom’s of Maine, they all share a mission-driven focus of bringing quality dental and oral health care to people in need and thus will receive sponsorship for construction of new dental clinics, funding more dental hygienists, and purchasing X-ray systems.”

Tom’s of Maine began the program in 2004 in response to the Surgeon General’s Report on Oral Health. According to the company, since its inception, the program has made a significant impact, providing over $770,000 to public dental clinics and helping tens of thousands of people in need receive dental care.
