Closing America’s Smile Gap for Underserved Kids
How you can help provide oral care items to children in need
From the LifeMinute.TV Team

Today in America, millions of kids woke up this morning without access to the basics many of us take for granted: a toothbrush and toothpaste. Too many kids are forced to use their fingers or washcloths. Or go without them. Kids should not have to brush their teeth this way.
It’s part of a much bigger problem – underserved kids don’t get the oral health care they need. Kids from low-income families are 2x as likely to suffer from tooth decay. And millions of them live with untreated tooth decay and completely preventable issues. Crest and Oral-B call this the Smile Gap and have created a new campaign to bring awareness to this harsh reality and get toothbrushes and toothpaste into the hands of every kid who needs them.
Beginning November 1 (National Brush Day) and throughout November, you can help out by joining Crest and Oral-B in closing America’s Smile Gap. With each product purchased, Crest and Oral-B will donate to a child in need. Follow the journey at crest.com.
