MARYVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is National Fresh Breath Day and this year, DenTek's™ Orabrush will be dancing around the topic of bad breath, literally. Throughout the day today, Morgan the Tongue will be sharing his words of wisdom on Orabrush's social media channels and his friends, the dancing tongues will be performing and handing out samples in an effort to help rid the world of bad breath once and for all.
Catch them today: Thursday, August 6th in New York City at 53rd and Broadway at 9am, 10am and 12:30pm.
According to a nation-wide survey conducted by DenTek and Bryant Research, bad breath is a bigger turn off than non-stop talkers, unstylish dressing or being shy. And, did you know that 90% of bad breath actually comes from a bacteria infested tongue? DenTek's Orabrush tongue cleaner is proven to help eliminate bad breath causing bacteria as it cleans deep into the crevices of your tongue to loosen and remove stinky "bad bacteria," helping to cure bad breath.
"We really wanted to educate our consumers about the importance of fresh breath on your overall oral health, but in an untraditional way, something to really grab their attention and our friends, the dancing tongues do just that," said Rachel Scharfman, Brand Director at DenTek. "Beyond the physical, there are a lot of oral health concerns including gum disease and bacteria that come from not having a healthy mouth and it is our job as the #1 tongue cleaning brand to help the world have fresher breath and improve their up-close confidence," said Scharfman.
Using its 30-plus years of experience developing innovative oral care products, DenTek and its latest acquisition Orabrush continue to promote healthy oral care hygiene for the entire family. "A confident and healthy smile is very important to our consumers and today is just the first example of raising awareness of the importance a clean tongue has on your breath." Please continue to follow the brand and our dancing tongues across the country as they visit college campuses with the DenTek tooth fairy squad this fall! #FreshFlashDance @Orabrush @Dentek.
