exocad, an Align Technology company and a dental CAD software provider, has donated 10,000 euros to the US-based National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) Disaster Relief Fund, a portion of which included proceeds made from a charitable T-Shirt campaign at the International Dental Show (IDS). Company executives presented the NADL with a check on site during the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting in February 2022.
NADL representatives said the donation would be of great use.
“On behalf of the National Association of Dental Laboratories we are grateful for the significant contribution by exocad to NADL’s Disaster Relief Fund,” said Tad Friess, president of NADL. “The Relief Fund was established by NADL in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. Since the fund was launched, the Relief Fund has provided emergency assistance to hundreds of dental laboratory professionals who have been personally and/or professionally impacted due to damage stemming from hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, floods and other natural disasters. exocad’s contribution will ensure NADL is able to continue to provide emergency assistance to those impacted.”
exocad is proud to contribute to this effort to provide financial assistance to dental laboratory professionals affected by natural disasters.
“The impact of natural disasters touches everyone,” said Tillmann Steinbrecher, CEO of exocad. “We’re glad we can help support people in the dental lab industry who are facing hardships.”
NADL is a trade organisation representing nearly 1,000 commercial laboratories in the United States.
