GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Helps to Bridge Oral Care Gap in Appalachia
Date:3/9/2009

PITTSBURGH, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- In Kentucky, nearly one out of every two of the state's children are enrolled in Medicaid, but barely a quarter of the dentists accept the insurance; therefore families on Medicaid are left with few options when it comes to seeing a dentist or receiving dental care.

In an effort to assist, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare, manufacturer of Aquafresh(R) and Sensodyne(R), has donated 10,000 toothbrushes and 30,000 tubes of toothpaste.

According to Colin Mackenzie, Vice President of Oral Care at GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare, "This donation of Aquafresh, Sensodyne, and Polident is one example of how we can support GSK's commitment of providing greater access to quality products and building trust in the community."

Dr. Edwin Smith, D.M.D. and his team at Kids First Dental Care are working to address the serious gap for children's oral care in Kentucky which was brought to the national spotlight during a special entitled "A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains," which aired on ABC's 20'20 last month.

Dr. Smith says he is thrilled by GlaxoSmithKline's donation, "This donation from GSK is one of the most generous we have received. These oral care products will be put to good use because we can actually get them directly into the hands of the children who need them the most."

Kids First Dental Care was formed in 2004 when Dr. Smith collaborated with local school personnel to explore ways to provide dental care to school children. Agreeing that the best way to gain access for children was to take the care directly to them in school, he purchased a used CAT scan trailer and outfitted it with used dental equi
