Posted May 11 2011 12:38am
The following is a press release put out by Mydent International recently highlighting their support of Autism Speaks. My regular readers know that I don’t often post press releases. However, I think it’s nice once in a while to hear about the good deeds of members of the dental community, and this is no exception.
HAUPPAUGE, NY: April 12, 2011 — Mydent International is pleased to announce its ongoing support of Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest and most effective autism science and advocacy organization. Autism Speaks is dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments and cure for autism.
With autism rates estimated as high as 1 in 91 children, Mydent feels compelled to take action. As a result, a portion of the profits from every DEFEND product sold will
go to Autism Speaks, with a $10,000 minimum annual commitment. Gary Mahr, Mydent’s Director of Operations, said: “As the parent of an autistic child, it is particularly gratifying to me that Mydent has chosen to support an outstanding organization such as Autism Speaks. It’s nice to know that a percentage of what we do every day is going to help improve the lives of people like my daughter.”
Mydent is proud to play a small part in helping Autism Speaks to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. We urge you to learn more at www.autismspeaks.org .
