Smile! It's Oral Health Month

Monday, April 01, 2013

April is Oral Health Month and during the next thirty days Crest is supporting Dress for Success in its mission to "promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life." Of course, a confident smile always comes in handy, too, which is why Crest is dedicated to creating products that improve your smile and promote oral health. 


Ever since my children were able to brush their own teeth, I would often buy Oral-B Stages manual toothbrushes since they loved all of the fun characters they could choose from. When I made the switch to using an electric toothbrush, they were curious to try one as well but found past electric toothbrushes a little too intimidating. It wasn't until I received the Oral-B Pro-Health For Me to try out as part of the P&G Mom program that my children reconsidered making the switch. They found the brushing experience to be quite gentle and they found it easier to use the on/off switch. I personally like that it has a built-in two-minute timer.


When I took the kids to their dental checkup during the March Break, I was so happy to learn that both kids were cavity free. While I was there, I asked the dentist which electric toothbrush he would recommend for the kids and he did not hesitate when he stated his preference for Oral-B. Having noticed the benefits of using an electric toothbrush myself, I was a little surprised to learn that, according to the third annual Crest and Oral-B Great Canadian Smiles Survey, 72% of Canadians were still using a regular manual brush as of 2011.

With the advances in technology comes a whole new design in electric toothbrushes. The Oral-B Professional Deep Sweep + SmartGuide brings you 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute, five customized brushing modes, a professional timer and a really cool wireless SmartGuide that smiles at you once you've brushed for the dentist-recommended two minutes. The SmartGuide also doubles as a clock to help keep you on schedule.


In honour of Oral Health Month, Oral-B is encouraging Canadians to bridge the gap and bring the technological revolution to their oral health regimens. They are also inviting you to pledge to get a more confident smile by brushing, flossing and rinsing with Crest and Oral-B products for 30 days. When you do, they will donate $1 to Dress for Success, up to a total of $20,000. Simply visit facebook.com/crestcanada to make your pledge. It took me literally seconds to do. Then come back here and enter for a chance to win your very own Oral-B Professional Deep Sweep Triaction 5000 prize valued at $185. Be sure to fill out the Giveaway Tools form below to be eligible. You must be a resident of Canada and, by entering the following contest, you are accepting that, if you win, your contact information will be shared with a P&G PR agency for the purpose of mailing your prize. Furthermore, this giveaway may appear on other blogs as part of the #PGmom program. However, to be fair, you can only win once per giveaway. If your name is chosen more than once, another winner will be selected.
