Smile On Oregon!

Here is a stunning fact: Oregon children have among the worst oral health in the nation. Because of poverty, lack of access to care, and other social and economic issues Oregon children suffer more dental pain and infection than children in almost any other state. Kids in pain get sick and miss school. In fact, Oregon educators estimate that on any given day over 5,000 children are suffering from dental pain or infection. And dental disease isn't a cosmetic problem. Poor oral health affects overall health.

The Dental Foundation of Oregon provides direct care and oral health education to underserved children. They support nonprofit dental clinics that serve children statewide and educate the public about the oral health challenges. They are funded by individuals, corporations and foundations who care deeply about improving children's oral health.

One way in which you can help support this much needed cause, is to purchase a $100 ticket to enter to win a brand new 2014 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang. Although the Mustang is here at Gresham Ford, the proceeds go directly to The Dental Foundation of Oregon. The car raffle drawing will be held in the Exhibit Hall at the Oregon Convention Center during the Oregon Dental Conference, Saturday, April 5th, 2014. You need not be present to win.

So, once again, we put it out to our community that there is a need and here is a way to help. And who knows? You may win an amazing car in the process. Stop by the cashier window here at Gresham Ford any time Monday-Friday 7am-midnight or on Saturday from 8am-4pm and ask for the Mustang Giveaway tickets and, while you’re here, take a look at this beautiful car right here on the show room floor! Or you can visit their website at smileonoregon.org and purchase one on line.
