Exocad supports Overland for Smile to provide dental care for disadvantaged kids in eastern Europe
DARMSTADT, Germany: Exocad, an Align Technology company, has announced its 2020 holiday contribution to the non-profit organisation Overland for Smile (ONLUS), which it has supported since 2018. Exocad’s donation is estimated to help support dental care for more than 160 disadvantaged children and teenagers in eastern Europe.
A portion of the donation includes proceeds from the charitable T-shirt campaign the company ran during its two-day exocad Insights event in September 2020, which featured two key slogans, “JUST CAD IT” and “arCADe champion”, created specifically for the campaign and printed on purple T-shirts.
“We are very pleased with the proactive support and donations we have received from exocad,” reported Cinzia Prazzoli, president and general manager of ONLUS. “With the donated amount, we can ensure providing dental care for a total of 166 children and teenagers from orphanages across eastern Europe.”
ONLUS has operated a mobile dental practice since 2005. Dedicated teams, each consisting of ten dentists and support volunteers, regularly drive to different eastern European areas to provide dental care to children and teenagers at orphanages free of charge. The modern dental equipment in its vehicles and other necessary dental supplies are financed by donations like those provided by exocad. The teams supporting these missions also donate their time. To date, almost 29,000 children and teenagers have received complimentary dental examinations and more than 11,000 have received dental treatment.
