Virtual Programs 

In 2022, TeamSmile will continue its partnership with the University of Buffalo Dental School and Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry to create and conduct TeamSmile Virtual Oral Health Education Presentations. Not only will children continue to learn about the importance of oral health, but they will also be receiving oral health kits to put into practice what these virtual programs are all about! These kits contain a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss (Colgate), hand sanitizer (Purell) and an oral health educational booklet. We are thrilled that DentaQuest is sponsoring the TeamSmile Virtual Oral Health Education Presentations.

“I have volunteered for multiple TeamSmile programs over the last several years, yet I am now looking forward to seeing the program experience through a child patient’s eyes, instead of though a dental hygiene volunteer eyes,” said Andrea Tresner. “I’m excited to see the thrill that the kids get when they come into a program.”

A native of Kansas City, KS, Errik Moore joined TeamSmile in January of 2022. Errik will manage the TeamSmile warehouse, equipment and supplies, and will help with the set-up & break-down of TeamSmile programs.  Having previously worked at UPS and FedEx, Errik is experienced in warehouse organization. He’s a former high school athlete, having competed in wrestling, football and track.

“Working for TeamSmile has been such a blessing. I’m looking forward to being able to travel while working,” said Errik Moore. “Everyone on the staff brings positive energy and joyfulness, putting in time and effort to make sure the programs go correctly, but when you learn the real reason why TeamSmile conducts these programs, it makes you want to come to work every day. For the kids around the nation who can’t afford it, we want to make sure we give them an opportunity to get dental care. This is truly a blessing.”
