Trident Teams Up With Oral Health America To Spread “Smiles Across America” (via @MarketWatch)

22 Sep


Trident® has been helping Americans maintain good oral health for more than 50 years and, as the original sponsor of Oral Health America’s (OHA) Smiles Across America® (SAA) program, is giving consumers nationwide a chance to help youth in need of oral care.

OHA, a national non-profit organization, working to educate Americans about the importance of dental care to overall health and well-being, launched SAA to provide oral disease prevention services for school-aged children who are uninsured and underserved due to issues of poverty – including lack of resources and transportation barriers. During the week of September 20th, every pack of Trident gum purchased at retailers nationwide will spur a five-cent donation to the SAA program, up to $250,000.

“Trident is committed to helping maintain good oral health and proudly supports SAA as it continues to advance its mission of providing access to oral disease prevention services for children,” said David Greci, Senior Associate Brand Manager, U.S. Gum. “We hope purchasing Trident gum this week is a simple way people can help support this worthwhile cause.”

In 2004, Trident provided funding to help launch SAA and support oral disease prevention services for children. Trident® Sugar Free Gum continues to be a major supporter of SAA as part of an ongoing commitment to the advancement of oral care in America’s youth.

“We are honored to once again have the support from Trident as we bring essential oral health care and education to children through SAA,” said OHA President and CEO Beth Truett.
