ENCINITAS, California—Tokuyama Empowers, Tokuyama Dental America's corporate social responsibility program, has partnered with Homeless Not Toothless to make dental care more accessible to underserved children. Homeless Not Toothless is a nonprofit dedicated to providing free, quality dental care to veterans, homeless people, foster youth, low-income children and underserved populations in Los Angeles.

Since the nonprofit’s inception 27 years ago, Homeless Not Toothless has treated more than 60,000 patients and provided more than $5 million in free care to those in need. The organization works with “The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools,” which is currently in charge of the education of 14,000 children in the South Los Angeles area. Many children are unable to focus at school and show symptoms of malnutrition due to dental pain and the sequelae of the various stages of their dental disease. 

With dental issues being the number one reason for absenteeism, Homeless Not Toothless is providing students in the South Los Angeles area much-needed screenings, cleanings, education and dental care.
