In total, TeamSmile had 147 dental volunteers, 70 of which came from UDM’s School of Dentistry, who helped to provide 211 sealants, 145 fillings,
 34 extractions, 
four crowns and two pulpotomies. Together, dental volunteers delivered over $124,690 of free dental care to 192 children, amounting to an average treatment of $649 per child.

By partnering with professional sports organizations, TeamSmile and UDM Dental were able to work with children’s organizations, oral health professionals, surrounding communities and local athletes that solidify the message that oral health care is vital to long-term health.

TeamSmile has partnered with such teams as the Lions, Cleveland Indians, Chicago Bears, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints, Milwaukee Brewers, Denver Nuggets, Kansas City Royals, and more.
