Crest Glide, Alison Sweeney Team Up To Benefit Feeding America
Crest Glide Floss partnered with Alison Sweeney, host of “The Biggest Loser” and an award-winning actress on“Days of our Lives,” in the Crest Glide Tight Spaces Challenge. Held in New York and Los Angeles in November 2009, the goal of the challenge was to help others discover the multiple benefits of daily flossing while benefiting Feeding America, a leading domestic hunger-relief charity.

“I am excited to be working with Crest Glide because I believe in the power of a brilliant smile and understand the importance of keeping my mouth healthy,” Sweeney said. “I use Crest Glide because unlike regular floss, it slides easily in the tight spaces between my teeth to remove food particles and plaque which can lead to gingivitis or even a more serious form of gum disease if not treated.”
