Guardians Life Insurance Company of America committed $1 million to the Children’s Health Fund. The donation launched the Guardians of the Smile partnership to provide quality dental care and education to children in undeserved communities across the United States. From January to June 2018, Children’s Health Fund’s programs provided more than 7,500 dental encounters to children in Washington D.C., Dallas, Idaho, Los Angeles, New York, and Southern Arizona thanks to Guardian’s support.
The spokesperson for the Austin branch of the Guardians of the Smile is former pro-football player Michael Griffin. Michael Griffin will lead the partnership in Austin starting with Cook Elementary School. Students at Cook Elementary School learn about the importance of good oral hygiene at a fun and interactive event. K-2 students at the Austin school will brush larger-than-life teeth, wrangle giant floss, and meet the Tooth Guardian™. For more information visit check out their website:
