Dentists recognised for their significance: Colgate’s “Bright Smiles, Bright Future”
Diabetes, anorexia, bulimia and HIV are just a few of the diseases which can be detected through dental check-up’s, showing the importance of having a regular visit to the Dentist – be it Polyclinic or private surgeon.
A multi-sectoral partnership between the Ministries of Health & Education with the Barbados Dental Association and Colgate-Palmolive for this year’s extensive Oral Health month campaign which included a competition for Colgate users to win a Canon digital camera.
This year’s campaign not only passed by at Primary schools but also visited Supermarkets looking to target 7 & 8 year old’s so oral care can get a head start in Barbados.
The almost decade long initiative is now a major event for Primary schools to look forward early in the opening term, both private sector and Polyclinics demonstrate their Community spirit.
