In 2015, Delta Dental of Rhode Island once again served as a premier sponsor of the Rhode Island Mission of Mercy free dental clinic. Delta Dental’s sponsorship of this annual event, which included a $60,000 donation through the company’s charitable endowment, the Delta Dental of Rhode Island Fund, is an important part of the company’s mission to improve the oral health and wellness of all Rhode Islanders.
Along with its financial support, Delta Dental of Rhode Island supported the clinic with the company’s largest-ever team of employee and family volunteers. In addition, nearly 100 dentists, including many Delta Dental of Rhode Island participating dentists, volunteered at the Community College of Rhode Island’s Flanagan campus in Lincoln on May 30 and 31 to treat approximately 800 patients.
Volunteer dentists and hygienists performed more than 3,380 procedures during the two-day event, totaling more than $493,888 in donated services.
Delta Dental of Rhode Island has been a premier
sponsor of the Rhode Island Mission of Mercy for the past four years.
