Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures(R) Kids' Initiative Visits Union City, NJ
Date:5/5/2009

UNION CITY, N.J., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Colgate and the Hispanic Dental Association officially declared April El Mes de la Salud Bucal: Un Mundo de Sonrisas Saludables (Oral Health Month: A World of Healthy Smiles(R)) as part of an ongoing commitment to quality oral care among the Hispanic community. The Latino population has the lowest incidence of dental visits when compared to any other ethnicity and ranks the highest for untreated dental caries among children, according to a 2007 study by the National Center for Health Statistics for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(1)

In response to the low number of annual Hispanic dental visits, Colgate is providing free dental screenings for disadvantaged children at select retailers throughout Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, and New Jersey, as part of the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures(R) kids' initiative. Essentially, the educational campaign is structured to remind Hispanics that prevention is less costly than treatment and as such, strong oral health habits at home are extremely important.
