Saving Smiles
One Brush at a Time

The crew of local high schoolers pictured above helped pack more than 20,000 toothbrush kits to be distributed across North Dakota.

Earlier this month, a team of more than 170 volunteers gathered at Patterson Dental to pack toothbrush kits for North Dakotans in need. The event is part of the North Dakota Dental Foundation’s 1 Million Brushes program.

The completed kits were donated to the YWCA Cass Clay — via the Fargo Lions Club  — and also donated to the Great Plains Food Bank, which will help distribute the kits across the state to families in need.

Did you know that 67% of rural ND kindergarteners have tooth decay?

Since 2017, the North Dakota Dental Foundation has distributed more than 230,000 toothbrushes and thousands of dental kits to save the smiles of children-in-need. When we help children develop routine brushing habits between dental visits, their overall oral health is significantly impacted.

Together we can ensure an entire generation of North Dakota children-in-need have the oral health supplies they need.  Together we will create #CavityFreeND by providing 1 million toothbrushes to kids-in-need.
