It’s a great value for a good cause.”

“DentaCheques is a good program. My customers appreciate it and they know it helps people in need. It feels good to know I’m helping the less fortunate and I’m grateful to be part of it,” said Bill Michales of Dental Health Products Inc.

Sales professionals from participating supply companies earned one entry to the drawing per DentaCheques book sold during January 1 to June 30, 2017. Representatives of Benco Dental, Burkhart Dental, Dental Health Products, Inc., Henry Schein Dental, companies of NDC Dental, and Patterson Dental sell DentaCheques without compensation.

MyShell Baker-Wilson of Benco Dental added, “Not only do the proceeds from DentaCheques go toward a great cause, it’s an awesome way to get samples of new products into the doctor’s hands.”

Henry Schein Dental’s Denise Smith mentioned, “I love selling DentaCheques! I believe in it, it’s so important to help the misfortunate. Even though it takes some time out of my day to sell it, it’s worth it.”

DentaCheques sales throughout 2017 are projected to raise $1.48 million to financially support the delivery of dental care to thousands of vulnerable people through DLN and its Donated Dental Services (DDS) program. Over 15,000 dentists and 3,800 laboratories nationwide volunteer for DDS and donate care to people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile.
