DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, the Dallas Mavericks and TeamSmile, the nation's premier advocacy group that supports life-changing dental care for underserved children, announced today students from Dallas ISD and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas will receive free access to minimally invasive and virtually pain-free dental care. The event is scheduled from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT and will feature current Mavericks players, Mavs ManiAACs, dancers and the Mavericks mascot Champ. The ideal time for media to attend and cover the event will be at 3:30 p.m. Families will gain first-hand experience of some of the latest dental technologies, including BIOLASE's Waterlase dental lasers.
Waterlase dentists from the Dallas-Fort Worth area will volunteer their time and expertise to serve 300 children, providing a life-changing dental experience anchored in the excitement and allure of meeting their sports heroes. Care will include dental screenings, preventive measures and onsite radiographs and laser treatments, if needed.
"Partnering with the Mavericks and BIOLASE on this important initiative is extremely important to us and the children of Dallas," said TeamSmile Executive Director John McCarthy. "By exposing underserved children to dental procedures and the importance of oral hygiene, we are setting them up to be proactive in their dental health for years to come. Creating a fun day with players, mascots and dancers helps children get interested in their own health and learn about the great treatment advances made with dental lasers."
This is the third initiative that BIOLASE has worked on with TeamSmile, following their successful programs in Los Angeles in November 2018 and January 2019. BIOLASE will continue to support more of these initiatives in the coming months to work to advance dental care and dental laser awareness across the nation.
"Exposure to proper dental hygiene at a young age is important for maintaining lifelong oral health," said BIOLASE CEO Todd Norbe. "With our partnership with TeamSmile and the Dallas Mavericks, our goal is to lessen the fear associated with dentistry and give children a chance to meet and connect with their sports idols. When children better understand these dental procedures, their fear of them is relieved and they are more likely to attend dental checkups with greater regularity."
