•The Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures oral health education program held a special event at the Fienberg Fisher School in Miami Beach to dedicate one of its mobile dental vans to provide free dental screenings, oral health education and treatment referrals to children in need throughout Florida.
Against a backdrop of music and costumed characters, more than 400 elementary school students joined former Miami Dolphin Jason Taylor to celebrate the unveiling of the mobile dental vans. As part of the festivities, students on-site received free dental screenings aboard the van and participated in a mass “brush-a-thon” led by Taylor.

Colgate’s fleet of mobile dental vans visits more than 1,000 towns each year in the US reaching more than 10 million children with oral health education and dental screenings. Colgate’s new efforts in Florida are supported by Broward County Public Schools; Community Health of South Florida, Inc.; the Continental Societies, Inc.; Hispanic Dental Association; Miami Dade College’s School of Allied Health Technologies; Miami Dade County Public Schools; National Dental Association; Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine and the University of Florida College of Dentistry.
