PHOENIX, Ariz. / PRNewswire (November 1, 2016) — New dental continuing education company CE Karma’s first course will donate proceeds to non-profit partner Mission of Mercy (M.O.M.) and America’s Dentists Care Foundation (ADCF), in support of free oral health care. The official launch of CE Karma will be held on November 11-12th at the Falls Event Center in Gilbert, AZ.

CE Karma Launch Directly Supports Social Cause
CE Karma’s passion for social responsibility will kick off at their official launch in Gilbert, where donated funds from the continuing education course will go to the first CE Karma supported M.O.M. event in Phoenix.

“We’re proud to launch our first CE course in support of the necessary services that Mission of Mercy provides,” said Lani Becker, Director of Social Cause at CE Karma. “It’s the start of a mutually beneficial relationship that will empower private practicing dentists and transform the lives of people without access to oral health care.”
