Oak Lane Dental proudly donated toothpaste and toothbrushes to help Miss Ohio International’s mission of providing education and dental care to underprivileged children. Claire Todd, who was crowned Miss Ohio International in 2019, is currently a pre-dental student at Otterbein University.
“My passion to become a dentist began when I was only six years old. I have firsthand experienced the transformative power of dentistry, and I want to be able to provide a place where I can cultivate confidence within my patients through improving the quality of their smiles. I love the relationships dentists build with their patients through meeting them in their pain, discomfort, or fear and providing a way to improve their quality of life,” stated Todd.
Oak Lane Dental mirrors Todd’s passion for educating children on the importance of dental health and its direct effect on overall health. “This year, I have been educating children around Ohio on how to take care of their oral health and integrate those healthy habits into their everyday life,” she commented.
Oak Lane Dental’s donation will be sent to orphanages in Honduras and Mexico through the non-profit groups KidSMILES and Christ Smiles Dental Mission, where Todd is an ambassador, volunteer, and fundraiser.
