Northeast Delta Dental and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats team up again to promote Oral Health Challenge

Northeast Delta Dental is excited to announce it will partner again with The New Hampshire Fisher Cats to promote the Oral Health Challenge. In its thirteenth year, the program aims to encourage children to develop healthy oral hygiene habits while enjoying a fun-filled day at Delta Dental Stadium.

The Oral Health Challenge encourages children aged 12 and under to brush their teeth twice and floss once daily for a week. By completing the challenge, participants will earn two tickets to a Fisher Cats game at Delta Dental Stadium, and a goody bag.

“We hope these good dental care habits will become a lifelong practice for children,” explained Tom Raffio, President & CEO, Northeast Delta Dental. “This program also underscores our commitment to advocating for dental care starting at age one, to greatly reduce or prevent cavities.”

To participate in the Oral Health Challenge, parents or guardians can obtain a form at their in-network Northeast Delta Dental dentist. Forms can also be downloaded from the Northeast Delta Dental website ( or the New Hampshire Fisher Cats website ( In addition to the two free tickets earned through the challenge, families can also purchase additional tickets for $10.00 each.

"We're happy to partner with Northeast Delta Dental to provide kids with a memorable experience at our ballpark, as well as a lesson on the value of brushing and flossing," said Michael Neis, Fisher Cats General Manager. “Thank you to Tom Raffio and the whole Northeast Delta Dental family for working together to combine oral health education and family fun at Delta Dental Stadium.”

The Oral Health Challenge games will take place on June 21, July 25, August 20, and September 6. Participants who complete the challenge will also be honored with an on-field parade before the game.
