Colgate Building Smiles Tour #buildingsmiles

Colgate is traveling the country helping to educate parents and children on the importance of good oral care. This week I went to visit the Colgate bus with my four year old son Tyler.

In an effort to help combat rising cavity rates and build healthy smiles, Colgate's Bright Smiles, Bright Futures is working with Walmart to create "Building Smiles Together" — a new initiative dedicated to providing free dental screenings and oral health education to children in need.

Traveling around the country throughout the year, a fleet of Colgate's Bright Smiles, Bright Futures mobile dental vans will be on-site at participating Walmart stores. Staffed by volunteer dental professionals, children (ages 1- 12) will receive free screenings, treatment referrals and key learning tools to help them build a lifetime of healthy habits.

By combining the free screenings and education with Walmart's everyday low prices and broad assortment of oral care products, this initiative will provide families the much-needed access to the education and everyday oral care necessities they need to live better, healthier lives.

When we first came of the bus we were greeted by friendly Colgate staff. They welcomed us on the bus with a smile and a warm welcome. First we sat and watched a video about the importance of good dental hygenie.

Tyler and I were able to get a great education about oral hygiene. One of the neatest things they gave us was a brushing chart that we can use at home to record our teeth brushing for Tyler. It has already gotten Tyler so excited about brushing his teeth. When we got home we visited the Colgate Building Smiles website and printed out some games to play at home.

The Colgate Building Bright Smiles tour bus is going to be making many more stops across the country. You can view their tour schedule here so that you can find a location that is close to you.

We are happy to be able to give one of our readers a Colgate Bright Smiles Tour goodie bag.
