United Concordia Dental, Highmark Foundation sponsor free June dental clinic in Reading
Jun 11, 2024

CAMP HILL, Pa. (June 11, 2024) – Reading’s Santander Arena will be the home of the MOM-n-PA dental clinic, June 21-22, where about 2,000 underserved children and adults will receive free dental care. United Concordia Dental and the Highmark Foundation are major sponsors of the event.

Each year, MOM-n-PA brings together hundreds of volunteers to provide free dental exams, cleanings, fillings, root canals and other dental care to Pa. individuals and families in need. Services are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration is not required.

According to the National Association of Dental Plans, 16% of Pennsylvanians do not have dental insurance, and they are more likely to not seek care.

“Free dental clinics like MOM-n-PA fill a crucial public health need — making critical dental care possible for those who need it the most,” said Donna Hunter, vice president, Strategic Business Development, United Concordia Dental. “We’re proud to support MOM-n-PA and its outstanding work to help Pennsylvanians get back on track to better oral — and overall — health as a legacy sponsor since its start in 2013.”

United Concordia and Highmark have sponsored MOM-n-PA dental clinics for the past 11 years. The companies’ employees also contribute to the mission by volunteering their time and skills to assist with administrative and logistical duties at the two-day clinic.

“We are pleased to be a sponsor of this dental clinic event,” said Yvonne Cook, president of the Highmark Foundation. “We know that oral health is a big part of overall physical and mental health, so this event fits perfectly with our mission of improving the health, well-being and quality of life for individuals who reside in communities like Berks County.”

Since 2013, MOM-n-PA has provided over $9 million in free dental care to about 14,000 patients through the generosity of 8,000-plus volunteers.
