Industry Watch — DentalEZ donates dental equipment to chimpanzee rescue organization
DentalEZ announced Jan. 10 that it is donating dental products along with operatory and utility room equipment to Project Chimps, an organization focused on providing sanctuary care to captive chimpanzees.
The products were delivered to Project Chimps’ new 236-acre sanctuary in Morganton, Georgia. The location will eventually house 200 chimps that were formerly used for medical testing.“It’s a very rewarding feeling to know that we are providing the medical and dental equipment to chimps that, up to this point, have spent most if not all of their lives in a research laboratory,” said Peter Volk, territory sales manager at DentalEZ who will be overseeing the dental facility.
“As a DentalEZ representative, it is important that we give back not only to the people in our community, but also to those that do not have a voice. It is our calling as dental professionals to make sure that everyone, both human and animal, are treated with the utmost care and respect.”
