Colgate Dental Van to Provide Students with Free Dental Screenings,

Treatment Referrals and Oral Health Education

The event, which was hosted by Critics Choice Award Winner and Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky, featured an original comedy sketch that used humor to help students understand the importance of maintaining good oral health habits. A Colgate mobile dental van, one of a fleet of eight "clinics on wheels" that the company sponsors around the U.S., was also on hand to provide students with free dental screenings, treatment referrals and oral health education.

The Bright Smiles Comedy Showcase is part of a public commitment Colgate's Bright Smiles, Bright Futures program made in 2002 to reach 100 million children in the United States by 2010 with free dental screenings, treatment referrals and oral health education. By the end of 2008, the company will be more than three-quarters of the way to reaching its goal.

Nikki Blonsky presided over the
