The Colgate Mobile Dental Van is part of Colgate’s Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® initiative. The Colgate Van provides free screenings and will be stationed at the Hub City Farmer’s Market on Saturday, August 18 from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The van has two child-sized dental chairs aboard and the average dental screening lasts approximately two minutes. With the support of volunteer dental professionals, children ranging from three to 12 years of age all receive free dental check-ups, treatment referrals (if needed), and learning materials that include a tube of Colgate® kid’s toothpaste, a Colgate® kid’s toothbrush and brushing instructions. The Junior League of Spartanburg has coordinated this effort for this service in our community.
