MARYVILLE, Tenn.--()--It’s back-to-school time for kids of all ages nationwide, and DenTek – one of the nation’s leading providers of oral care products – reminds parents and kids alike to take responsibility for proper oral care.
“Parents should also teach their children what can happen, like cavities and root canals, when you forget to routinely brush or floss.”
“From school-age children to college students, practicing daily oral hygiene routines is a must,” said Charlotte Havely, director of marketing for DenTek. “Growing up with solid oral care habits saves money down the road and keeps your smile looking its best.”
According to Havely, younger DenTek consumers enjoy Fun Flossers™, Braces Clean™ floss picks and interdental brushes to remove food and plaque. College-age students prefer various types of floss picks, such as the Comfort Clean™ with silky floss, Triple Clean™ with scrubbing floss and Complete Clean™ with shred-proof floss, as well as tongue cleaners that help to stave off bad breath.
“Fun and colorful flossers with easy-to-grip handles are a great way to encourage kids to start practicing proper oral care at an early age,” said Havely. “Parents should also teach their children what can happen, like cavities and root canals, when you forget to routinely brush or floss.”
This fall, DenTek is helping college students nationwide assume better care of their oral health by bringing the Tooth Fairy to campuses from coast to coast, armed with floss pick samples.
The tooth fairy campaign kicks off at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with stops along the way at Ohio State University; New York University; Texas A&M; UCLA; and UC Berkeley.
“With oral care of increasing importance to people everywhere, DenTek takes its mantra – oral health for life – very seriously,” said Havely. “With school in full swing for students of all ages, now is the perfect time for parents to schedule their child’s dental cleanings for the year.”
