Oral-B donated $5,000 to promote awareness of the link between oral health and overall health and announced, on Thursday, a new Deep Sweep Power Brush during the ADA 153rd Annual Session in San Francisco.

Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, seen often on TV’s Dr. Oz show, is also part of the Glo Foundation, which helps create awareness of oral health. He and Maurice Coffey, Director of Oral Care with Procter and Gamble, presented a check for $5,000 to the San Francisco Dental Hygiene Society, which works with underserved populations to get them oral care.

“We are creating awareness of what is important for oral health and overall oral care,” explained Levine. For more information, see www.dentalcare.com.

“We are proud to be the first to receive a donation from Procter and Gamble,” said Susan Lopez, who accepted the check with Margaret Fisher, both of the society. The funds will be used to assist English and non-English speaking children in the San Francisco area with their oral care needs.

Additionally,  Coffey introduced the new and not-yet on the market Deep Sweep Power Brush. “It gives the same comfort you would expect to find from an Oral-B product,” he explained. “It mimics the design and comfort of a manual brush.”
