Crest (Proctor and Gamble) Toothbrush Program
The Crest Toothbrush Program donates over 2 million toothbrushes and tubes of Crest toothpaste to first-graders through-out the United States. Very often teachers, parents and children believe the toothbrush kits are donated by the Colorado Springs Dental Society, but they are not. We need to give the Proctor and Gamble Corporation all the credit. The Colorado Springs Dental Society applauds the Crest Toothbrush Program for their continued donations and thank them for being partners in our profession's efforts to improve the dental health of all children.

Teachers must contact the Crest Program directly to request toothbrush kits for their first- grade Classes. The kits must be ordered early in the school year to be shipped in February, for Dental Health Month. Contact the Crest Program at 1-800-526-6611.
