DentalPlans.com Matches Donations to Save 7 Smiles in 7 Days

DentalPlans.com Teams Up With Operation Smile to Host Social Media Fundraising Campaign

PLANTATION, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - From Monday, Nov. 14 through Monday, Nov. 21, DentalPlans.com will team up with Operation Smile to host a social media fundraising campaign called "Save 7 Smiles in 7 Days."

Through its Operation Smile fundraising page, DentalPlans.com will match donations made by its Facebook fans and Twitter followers. As part of the campaign, DentalPlans.com and Dentist.net will give away Crest Whitening Strips to one random donor every day.

"As a company that has given Americans (with or without dental insurance) a reason to smile, we're honored to be joining a global organization that impacts the lives of so many by healing children's smiles," said Kristen Reineke, VP of Marketing for DentalPlans.com.

Around the world, approximately one in every 600 children is born each year with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. And, one in 10 of children born with a cleft die before their first birthday. But, in as few as 45 minutes and with as little as $240, a single surgery can heal that child's smile, restoring long-term health and removing eating, speech and social difficulties.

An international children's medical charity, Operation Smile provides free reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities, such as cleft lips and cleft palates, by mobilizing more than 5,000 volunteer medical professionals from 76 countries.

Since June 2011, DentalPlans.com has been working to heal the smiles of more than 40 children (collectively) around the world by teaming up with Operation Smile and donating a minimum of $10,000. Throughout the year, DentalPlans.com has hosted several social media marketing efforts encouraging people to heal children's smiles with Operation Smile.
