Representatives from Delta Dental of Tennessee and their charitable arm, the Smile180 Foundation, visited Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt recently to present a check of $1 million to hospital leadership.

This gift established the Delta Dental of Tennessee’s Smile180 Foundation Directorship for the Cleft and Craniofacial Program and will provide critical support as the program expands its services to care for more patients. Phil Wenk, DDS, CEO of Delta Dental of Tennessee, and his team have been partnering with Monroe Carell for over two decades, supporting multiple hospital projects since 2001.
