Faces of Give Kids A Smile

“Give Kids A Smile is a priority for Henry Schein. It’s the right thing to do. The number of children who go without oral health care is staggering.” - Michele Penrose

The ADA Foundation Volpe Research Center is active in the cutting-edge field of biomaterials, emphasizing a strong applied research program and the translation of new technologies into clinical and over-the-counter products. VRC projects target technologies that meet the needs of patients, but also fit within the oral care delivery system and the industries that serve it.
