Thousands of free toothbrushes could encourage dental care

Thousands of free toothbrushes could encourage dental care An orthodontic business services provider recently donated thousands of toothbrushes to a children's hospital in Louisiana to promote dental health.

OrthoSynetics offers dental practices assistance with business activities such as marketing, according to the firm's website. The company just gave the New Orleans Children's Hospital 10,000 toothbrushes to help celebrate Orthodontic Health Month, says Dental Office Magazine.

"Giving toothbrushes to Children's Hospital during Orthodontic Health Month is a great way for us to support the local community and raise awareness of the importance of dental health," said OrthoSynetics CEO Chris Roussos to the magazine.

The brushes will be distributed by Tooth Buses, which are products of a collaborative effort made by the hospital and the Louisiana State University of Dentistry. The buses are equipped to provide comprehensive dental care, according to the news source.

"This was such a generous donation," Nancy Willis told the publication. Willis is the hospital's director of volunteer services. The Tooth Buses reportedly provided about 8,000 people with dental care last year.

According to the American Dental Association, children should see a dentist regularly after they begin teething.
