Through the power of collaboration, commitment and continuous improvement, we partner with dental professionals, retailers, suppliers, research organizations and third parties to ensure people and the planet thrive, today and for generations to come.

Our approach is designed to inspire healthy oral care habits through education, access to dental products and services, and innovation that makes the adoption of healthy habits easy and enjoyable.

Here is a look at how we are making progress on our journey.

  • Education: We collaborate with dental professionals across the globe. During the COVID-19 pandemic, when people couldn’t visit their dentist, we helped protect oral health through educational articles, videos and livestreaming sessions.

  • Access: In North America, Oral-B is providing $1 million in donated product and dental care to high-risk individuals through a partnership with Dental Lifeline Network. In China, we have donated more than $2.7 million worth of Crest Sonic Power Toothbrushes to improve people’s oral health.

  • Innovation: We are passionate about developing products that advance healthy habits for people and planet, from apps providing adults with dental coaching and our free Disney Magic Timer app that makes 90% of kids brush for longer, to products and packaging that generate less waste. Our Clic manual toothbrush helps reduce 60% of plastic waste and we are starting to move to recyclable toothpaste tubes in 2021.
