Bright Smiles, Bright Futures™ Back to School Bash
August 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
TWST4Girls is proud to present our partnership with Colgate for this life enriching event!! TWST4Girls is working with Colgate to bring dental screenings to over 300 Houston youth! Our goal is to send youth back to school with Bright Smiles and Bright Futures!
Aboard the Mobile Dental Van
Colgate’s mobile dental vans measure 32 feet long, nearly the size of a mobile home, and feature friendly visuals to help create a fun and less intimidating dental ‘screening experience’ to kids in rural and urban communities.
With two child-sized dental chairs aboard, Colgate’s Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® screens two children at a time. The average dental screening lasts approximately two minutes. With the support of our volunteer dental professionals, children ranging from three to 12 years of age all receive free dental check-ups*, treatment referrals (if needed), and learning materials that include a tube of Colgate® kid’s toothpaste, a Colgate® kid’s toothbrush and brushing instructions.
*For children who are in need of treatment or who do not have a dentist, we provide referrals so they can visit a dentist in their area and take care of any issues and maintain a healthy mouth.
