(LAS VEGAS, NV): Dan Edwards, CEO of Pact-One Solutions, is the newest addition to the Board of Directors of Future Smiles, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Future Smiles provides preventive oral health care to vulnerable children throughout Nevada. Their goal is to instill positive oral health behavior by providing oral health education as well as the supplies, such as toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste, those children need to cultivate lifelong habits.
Future Smiles has worked tirelessly since 2009 to remove barriers of care by providing the majority of their services where children spend a significant portion of their day, in school, during school hours. In the 2016‐2017 school year, Future Smiles provided oral health education to 20,127 students at 49 Nevada schools. The program screened 4,691 students and provided one or more dental sealant(s) to 58% of the children screened. Outcomes for the school year found that 96% of the children benefited from placement of a tooth protecting dental sealant.
Future Smiles data show that 42% of these children have untreated decay, and upwards of 13% indicate they have dental pain requiring urgent dental treatment.
At Pact-One Solutions, we honor doing our part in serving the local community and I am proud to join the Board of Directors at this invaluable nonprofit organization. Future Smiles provides an outstanding service to many children in Nevada who otherwise would go without dental care and - importantly – preventative dental services.
Future Smiles is determined to end dental pain and suffering among Nevada’s neediest children by partnering with the community to deliver essential oral health education and preventive care. Further program efforts include referral for dental exams and restorative services by a dentist.
On the board of Future Smiles, Edwards joins Lori Kepler-Cofano, BSDH, Board Chair/President; Vinetta De La Cruz, Secretary; Caryn Solie, RDH, Treasurer; Vicki B. Herman, M. Ed.; Donald T. Polednak, Esq.; and Terri Chandler, RDH, Founder and Executive Director
