3M ESPE donates composite material to dental charities

St. Paul, Minn.—3M ESPE has donated $40,000 worth of its Filtek Supreme dental composite to Give Kids A Smile-St. Louis, the National Children's Oral Health Foundation: America's ToothFairy and Oral Health America.

The donation is part of the company's "Changing Lives" campaign, designed to celebrate stories and testimonials shared by dentists of how the material helped them make a difference in the lives of their patients. First introduced in 2002, the Filtek Supreme line of dental composite has been used in some 400 million restorations, according to 3M. The donation represents one unit of dental composite given to a dental charity for every four-unit order purchased by a dentist.

"We were delighted to learn from hundreds of recent testimonials the importance dentists place on doing good and giving back to the community," said Drew Hoopes, marketing manager, 3M ESPE. "To do our part, 3M ESPE recently helped restore smiles and change lives with donations of Filtek Supreme Ultra, a product celebrating more than 10 years and more than 400 million restorations. We're proud to be a manufacturer who supports dentists' efforts to give back and do good."
