July 14, 2014 – Four dental sales professionals from four dental supply companies are the winners of the mid-year prizes of the 2014 DentaCheques Sales Contest. Sales professionals from various supply companies throughout the industry earned entries to win one of four cash prizes based on the number of DentaCheques books sold from January 1 – June 30, 2014.
Sales of DentaCheques books will continue through 2014 culminating in a year-end contest with results next January. Sales representatives of Benco Dental, Dental Health Products, Inc., Henry Schein Dental, NDC Dental and Patterson Dental sell DentaCheques without compensation.
In 2014, sales of DentaCheques are projected to raise more than $1.4 million to financially support the delivery of dental care to thousands of vulnerable people through Dental Lifeline Network and its Donated Dental Services (DDS) program. Over 15,000 dentists and 3,600 laboratories nationwide volunteer for DDS and donate care to people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile.

About Dental Lifeline Network
A national nonprofit organization, Dental Lifeline Network (formerly the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped) arranges comprehensive care for people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile through three programs. Its flagship Donated Dental Services (DDS) program reached a significant milestone in 2013: more than $250 million in donated care. The DDS program involves more than 15,000 volunteer dentists and 3,600 volunteer laboratories, serving patients in all 50 states and the District of Columbia who cannot afford dental care and have no other way to get help. Dental HouseCalls provides services through a portable treatment program in three states. Bridge/Campaign of Concern offers in-service training in two states to case managers, residential staff and parents who serve people that cannot care for their own teeth.
