Our goal is to inform about the process of oral hygiene and to arm pharmacists with an understanding of solutions to meet every patient’s needs. This will give both the pharmacists and patients something to truly smile about.

Pharmacists are presented with the unique opportunity to put a smile on the faces of their patients and consumers. They are often asked questions about oral hygiene and for guidance on the myriad of choices to mechanically remove plaque from teeth. Rather than simply say “see your dentist”, this program will provide healthcare professionals with knowledge about the clinical effectiveness and science behind these devices & technologies.
