Happy Oral Health Month (Plus A Very Easy-To-Do Good Deed To Celebrate The Occasion)

Oral Health Month
p/c: ADA

You may or may not know that June is Oral Health Month. If you did, give yourself a solid pat on the back, because your dental event knowledge is off the charts. If you didn’t, we can absolutely fill you in on all of the essential details.

According to the American Dental Association“the campaign will communicate that an effective way to teach children good oral care habits is for parents to model the behavior.”

Truer words were never spoken (even though we have actually echoed similar sentiments before).

Want to showcase your support for this oh-so-essential health fest? Please do! In fact, we highly encourage you to. It’s for a great cause too!

Members of the public—that’s you!—can post photos of themselves and their loved ones practicing good oral hygiene habits on social media, along with the hashtag “#TimeToSmile”. Colgate will donate $1 to the ADA Foundation’s incredible Give Kids A Smile program each time that someone shares a photo (they have committed to a minimum donation of $10,000 and a maximum donation of $40,000).

Oh and liking/sharing these photos will also count towards the benefit campaign, so show your fellow do-gooders some love!

Now, hop onto social media and broadcast those sparkling pearly whites for the betterment of communities around the world!
