The Colgate Van visited with students recently to promote healthy teeth and gums. The state-of-the-art mobile dental vans from Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® program are equipped to screen children for common oral health conditions. The vans help raise awareness about the importance of children’s dental health.
During the two-day visit, students received free dental check-ups, treatment referrals (if needed), and learning materials that include a tube of Colgate® kid’s toothbrush and brushing instructions. The students also watched a video that teaches kids how to properly brush their teeth.
In the U.S., Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® provides free dental screenings and oral health education to children.
Volunteer dentists and hygienists help create healthy smiles by donating their time and conducting free dental screenings. For children who are in need of treatment or who do not have a dentist, Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® provides referrals so they can visit a dentist in their area and take care of any issues and maintain a healthy mouth.
Colgate’s mobile dental vans measure 32-feet long, nearly the size of a mobile home and feature friendly visuals to help create a fun and less intimidating screening experience.
