Ameritas Group, a division of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., has a significant and enduring relationship with the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Recently Ameritas made a $5,000 contribution to the UNMC College of Dentistry’s student-run dental SHARING Clinic. The clinic opened in 2008 and provides dental care to low-income adults in the community. This volunteer clinic makes it possible for those who are underprivileged, underserved and underinsured to receive the dental care they need. It also gives the student volunteers a great learning opportunity.
“The partnership between Ameritas Group and the UNMC College of Dentistry is significant, and reflects our common goal of providing the best possible dental care services to community members in need,” said KenVanCleave, president of Ameritas Group.
Ameritas Group also recently made a $250,000 gift commitment to the University of Nebraska Foundation to establish a permanent endowment that will provide annual support for research focused on preventing, detecting and treating oral cancer.
