Women’s Lab Coat Pioneer Partners with the California Dental Association Foundation

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 23, 2010 -- Medelita®, maker of breakthrough performance women’s lab coats, doctor’s lab coats and medical apparel, announced that it is an official corporate supporter of the CDA Foundation. The CDA Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the California Dental Association, whose mission is to improve the oral health of Californians by supporting dental health professionals and their efforts to meet community needs. “The CDA Foundation provides much needed community access to dental care while ensuring a sustainable dental health workforce in California — both of which are reflective of the CDA Foundation’s multifaceted approach to advancing the state’s dental health,” said Lara Manchik, PA-C and founder, Medelita. “Whenever a CDA member purchases Medelita lab coats, scrubs and medical apparel or accessories, we will donate a portion of the sale to the CDA Foundation.” The CDA Foundation’s objectives are to promote the concept that oral health and general health are inseparable, provide grant opportunities to community-based organizations and individuals to reduce disparities in access to oral health care and assist in meeting the immediate needs of vulnerable populations. In addition, the Foundation promotes and supports a dynamic oral health workforce capable of meeting the oral health needs of Californians, while representing the philanthropic values of the dental profession. Medelita will donate proceeds of all CDA member purchases to the CDA Foundation. CDA members will be able to purchase qualifying products at CDA events and exhibits and on a special web site for CDA members, which will be coming soon.
