The Ohio Dental Association Foundation recently partnered with Kroger Community Rewards to help shoppers provide donations to the Foundation simply by buying groceries. Dr. Bauer currently serves on the Ohio Dental Association council and will serve as chair in 2017, so we wanted to share with our patients this easy new way they can help the Ohio Dental Association Foundation.

The ODA Foundation will receive donations from Kroger when shoppers link their cards to the Foundation and then spend money at Kroger. Donations to the ODA Foundation go toward providing grants to nonprofits that offer Ohioans access to dental care or oral health education as well as to scholarships for worthy dental students.

Here’s more information from the Ohio Dental Association’s website regarding this great partnership:

The Ohio Dental Association Foundation has recently teamed up with Kroger Community Rewards to create a new way for dentists to support the foundation, without having to spend any extra money.
