Colgate promotes oral health awareness on Gulf Coast

Colgate-Palmolive has teamed up with three National Football League players from the New Orleans Saints to champion good oral health among Gulf Coast children.

Super Bowl champions Jonathan Vilma, Pierre Thomas, and Marques Colston will cohost Mardi Gras-style festivals highlighting the importance of maintaining good oral health. With the Saints players cheering them on, children will board the Colgate mobile dental vans for screenings and learn how to maintain good oral health habits. Participants will also brush their teeth and gums along with the players.

More than 600 children in New Orleans and Mississippi's Hancock and Harrison counties will receive free dental screenings, oral health education, and treatment referrals July 10 and 11. They will also join the football players in a brush-a-thon to promote oral health awareness.

The Gulf Coast oral health festivals are part of Colgate's ongoing Bright Smiles, Bright Futures national oral care education program.
