“I am pleased to report that Colgate Palmolive has repeated its financial contribution to the Foundation,” ADHF chairman David Owen said.
“Having been a donor to the Foundation from 2016, Colgate has now agreed to continue to financially support the Foundation’s Rebuilding Smiles program. This financial contribution to the operations of this program has been invaluable in the development and growth of the program. We want to sincerely thank Colgate for its ongoing support. To have the support of such a respected name in dentistry is invaluable.”
Dr Susan Cartwright, Scientific Affairs manager for Colgate Oral Care, said: “Colgate has seen the Rebuilding Smiles program grow from its infancy to a point where the program now has been able to assist over 100 victims of domestic violence receive expert dental care that they would not otherwise have been able to obtain.”
She added that to hear feedback from those who had received care that their treatment had given them confidence to re-enter society and helped turn their lives around demonstrated the effectiveness of the program.
“Without Colgate, our other sponsors and importantly the generosity of the dental profession who donate their time to treat victims of violence free of charge, the Foundation would not have been able to achieve the growth it has been able to provide—we are eternally grateful to all supporters for their assistance,” Owen concluded.
