NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Theodent™ chocolate-based toothpaste may find its way home with some of Country Music's biggest stars attending "The 46th Annual CMA Awards." The fluoride-free toothpaste will be included in the official gift bag at this year's CMA Awards. The program, billed as "Country Music's Biggest Night™," airs Nov. 1 at 8p eastern/7p central on ABC.
"The inclusion of Theodent™ in the gift bag/lounge at the CMA Awards will put our product in the hands of some of Country Music's biggest stars," said Arman Sadeghpour, Theodent™ chief executive officer. "We're hoping this visibility will catapult the brand of our product, which is in its first year of sales." CMA Awards presenters and performers include a long list of megastars including Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and more.
Theodent™ contains Rennou™, a propriety blend that contains an extract of chocolate plus other minerals that work together to strengthen teeth. Rennou™ causes the calcium and phosphorus that is also contained in human saliva to stimulate new enamel growth. Rennou™ was discovered by a team of New Orleans researchers who found that it actually caused microscopic unit crystals of the tooth enamel to grow larger, resulting in stronger teeth. The New Orleans-based company provided 80 boxes of Theodent™ 300, a luxury version that retails for $99.99 for inclusion in the gift bag/lounge.
Theodent™ Classic ($9.99 suggested retail) is available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide, Raley's in California and online at www.theodent.com. Extra-strength Theodent™ 300, which is included in the CMA Awards gift bags, is available through theodent.com, select cosmetic dentists and medical professionals.
