Patterson Dental and its business partners report raising a record annual contribution to support Dental Lifeline Network (DLN), a national nonprofit organization that offers dental care to disabled individuals, and those who are elderly or medically fragile.

Patterson Dental and its business partners report raising a record annual contribution to support Dental Lifeline Network (DLN), a national nonprofit organization that offers dental care to disabled individuals, and those who are elderly or medically fragile.

The contribution occurred in conjunction with the Patterson Leadership Summit in Minneapolis, an annual event that gathers the North American Patterson Dental management team to discuss patient experience and practice lifestyle improvement initiatives for the coming year.

We are excited to report that 2013 contributions to Dental Lifeline Network programs will exceed $236,000 – a record amount and a more than 12 percent increase over funds raised in 2012,” said Patterson Dental President Paul Guggenheim. “This overwhelming support from our dental industry partners demonstrates what can be accomplished when we work together in tangible ways to transform the lives of needy people who have no other way to receive dental treatment.”

DLN’s Donated Dental Services (DDS) program recruits a combined 18,600 volunteer dentists and laboratories to assist patients in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Donations provided during the Patterson Leadership Summit go to support these services, which DLN says offered 7,337 special needs individuals $23.3 million in dental therapies in 2012.

Every year we embrace the opportunity to connect with business partners at our Leadership Summit,” Guggenheim said. “But through our ongoing support for DLN we also have the opportunity to help more people and impact our industry as a whole, which makes this event truly rewarding.”
