Beyond Benefits: Play Ball! For TeamSmile
Delta Dental of Wisconsin, through its Charitable Fund, has paired up again with the Brewers Community Foundation to be the lead sponsor of TeamSmile. The annual one-day event held at Miller Park provides free dental care to low-income children from two Milwaukee-area youth organizations. The goal is to provide dental education and preventive care (cleaning, fluoride treatments, varnish, and X-rays) and when needed, restorative treatment, to more than 400 children.
Local dentists and hygienists volunteer their time at the Wisconsin TeamSmile dental care day. The grants from Delta Dental and the Brewers Community Foundation fund the rental of the equipment and supplies needed to provide the dental care.
TeamSmile was created in 2006 as a dream of Kansas City dentist, Dr. William Busch. Dr. Busch believed he could make a difference by hosting a dental outreach event in his community where the need was greatest. He recognized that most at-risk children looked up to sports teams and would love to be invited into their team's stadium. He appealed to his local Kansas City Chiefs to increase the impact of his oral health care program.
This dream has grown as other sports teams and volunteers have embraced the idea of partnering with dentistry to reach underserved youth in their community. TeamSmile provides these children with a life-changing dental experience where the excitement and allure of high profile sports reinforces the value and commitment of oral health care. TeamSmile hosts 13 programs annually, including Milwaukee.
