The month of September 2016 is set to be ‘Oral Health Month’ as Colgate embarks on another health-benefit initiative that will provide free dental screenings.
The initiative is for many of those who don’t find time to see a dentist at least once a year. Colgate, will seek to further provide nationwide education on how to help promote good oral health.
Colgate will provide free screenings in many shopping centres within Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein. These consultations will allow patients to receive oral care advice as well as product guidance.
Colgate’s ambition is to make a direct, positive change where it matters most, giving everyone a healthy mouth to live a better life. Dr Alexander Rawhani, affectionately known as ‘Dr Smile’ is a proud supporter of Colgate’s commitment to ensuring that South Africans have happier, healthier smiles.
“I have been involved in Colgate’s oral health education projects for many years and I always look forward to these campaigns because Colgate genuinely cares so much about their communities,” he said. South African actress Sophie Ndaba, who is famously known for her role as Queen Moroka in the soapie ‘Generations’, is another supporter of Colgate’s campaign saying, “this endeavour is truly close to my heart and will have an immense, positive impact on the lives of people who need oral care the most.”
The free screenings will be taking place at Bloem Plaza in Bloemfontein from the 1st– 2nd October
