Heidelberg, November 21, 2017 – The American dental group Young Innovations is not only globally present with its products, it has also been engaged in social projects worldwide for decades. Social responsibility is part of the company’s philosophy – not only at Christmas time.
Most prominent among those provided with long-term support have been certified organisations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Oral Cancer Foundation and the “Give Kids a Smile” initiative. It offers underprivileged children free dental treatment from prevention to restoration. Since 2002, more than five million patients have been treated. Young Innovations subsidizes these and other groups with products, financial support or training scholarships, for example for dental hygienists.
The employees of Young Innovations are also working for a good cause: At the European logistics center, deliveries are primarily made for dental customers, but for the past seven years, Christmas parcels have also been filled with donations by employees and sent out to people in need in Africa.
Disadvantaged children are also reached by the “Back to School” campaign. At the beginning of the school year, children’s satchels are equipped with the necessary exercise books and pens and extras such as toys, toothbrush and toothpaste. In addition, a team of dental hygienists visits selected schools and orphanages around the world. The children receive free professional dental cleaning, including fluoridation and sealants, and are taught how to look after their teeth.
