There is an oral care crisis in America.
Kids in underserved communities are the ones who suffer the most from tooth decay, which contributes to more lost sleep, missed school days, and poor overall health.
Every child in America deserves a happy, healthy smile. That’s why Crest and Oral-B…
- Donated $2.5 million+ dental products in 2020
- Established partnerships with 400,000 dental professionals in all 50 states
- Established dental school scholarships for underserved students
And that’s just the beginning.
Crest and Oral-B are Closing America’s Smile Gap by providing oral care to 20 million smiles in need by 2030.
Providing Access to Dental Care
We’re traveling to America’s hardest hit communities and hosting 20 dental care access events and providing over 2 million oral care product donations.
We’re providing our dental care curriculum for schools so that teachers can spread the word about healthy oral care habits to kids in need.
Establishing Dental Care Scholarships
So far, we have given over $1 million in scholarships for minority dental students with the goal of bringing more diversity into the next generation of dental professionals.
“I’m truly grateful to Crest & Oral-B that they’re supporting my mission in caring for the community…so that other children don’t have to suffer.”
“Teaching kids from young ages proper brushing habits and good oral hygiene tips, hopefully they can live a life cavity free.”
“This was the first time some of my students had been to the dentist.”
“Everyone should have an opportunity to be able to have dental visits and a bright smile.”
