TeamSmile®, a unique national dental outreach program, gains continued support from DEXIS™, a brand of the Kavo Kerr Group, for the 7th consecutive year. Since the inception of the TeamSmile program in 2007, DEXIS has been a proud supporter through its donation and maintenance of its digital imaging systems, DEXIS™ Platinum sensors, CariVu™ caries detection, and DEXcam™ intraoral cameras, as well as financial contributions. TeamSmile partners with dental professionals and athletic organizations to bring together athletic role models and underserved children in communities across the country at events held throughout the year. These events allow the children to obtain free screening and treatment and also learn about the importance of their overall health. DEXIS has rededicated efforts to assist TeamSmile with company volunteers, on-site systems, and funding.
By partnering with professional sports organizations, TeamSmile creates an experience that develops bonds between children’s organizations, oral health professionals, surrounding communities, and the athletes that solidify the message that oral healthcare is vitally important to long-term health. Understanding that these patients deserve the very best, volunteer dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and educators provide the highest level of care and use industry-leading materials and equipment. Through this experience, children are taught that the mouth and body are linked for overall health, and they receive free oral health education, screening, and treatment.
