Delivering Toothbrushes and Smiles Worldwide.

Why Toothbrushes?

In addition to making smiles brighter, toothbrushes aid in better oral health, which can have a direct positive impact on overall health, as well as self esteem. Poor oral hygiene can cause serious health issues by promoting the spread of bacteria in the body, increasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer, pregnancy complications and premature birth.

Poor oral hygiene leads to poor overall health:
”The surgeon general estimates that 85 percent of Americans have gum disease – which makes it one of the six major risk factors for heart attacks and strokes. Indeed, the plaque in our mouths is the same as the plaque in our arteries, so if you have bleeding gums, that stuff is entering your bloodstream.”
… Jane Glenn Haas, Orange County Register

“Our mouth is the gateway to health…our mouths are where our life begins, so don’t let it end there.”
…Daniel L. Sindelar, DDS, author of Refresh Life
