Guess what today is-- it's National "Brush Your Teeth At Work Day!" That's right, today Church & Dwight Co., Inc., makers of Arm & Hammer Spinbrush and Arm & Hammer Toothpaste are celebrating the 3rd annual event which encourages people to add a third brushing occasion to their day. So whether you are hard at work or a hard-working mom, take some time to maintain that healthy bright smile!
Besides receiving a wonderful "Brush Your Teeth at Work Day" toiletry kit (which included an Arm & Hammer Spinbrush toothbrush and Arm & Hammer toothpaste), I got a lot of great information regarding oral health which I would love to share with you!
(The following information was provided to me through a press release)
According to a survey commissioned by Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the maker of ARM & HAMMER Spinbrush ProClean battery-powered toothbrushes and ARM & HAMMER Toothpaste: less than half of U.S. office workers keep a toothbrush at the office so that they can give their pearly whites a cleaning during the workday. And of those workers who already take a toothbrush to work, about half of them are not brushing at the office on a daily basis.
To encourage more Americans to add a third brushing occasion to their day, ARM & HAMMER Spinbrush ProClean battery-powered toothbrushes has declared the third annual “Brush Your Teeth At Work Day” for Thursday, April 19, 2012.
“ARM & HAMMER Spinbrush ProClean provides a more efficient clean than a manual brush, removing up to 70% more plaque in hard-to-reach places,*” Seitter said. “And with time at a premium in the workplace, a battery-powered toothbrush may be more efficient in making your mouth feel its best, allowing you to finish the workday with confidence.”
Seitter also stated that by brushing with ARM & HAMMER Advance White Toothpaste, people can experience a deeper clean, removing up to 5X more plaque in hard-to-reach places.** ARM & HAMMER Advance White Toothpaste contains baking soda, which has long been recognized for its health benefits, such as acting as a natural buffer that maintains good pH levels inside the mouth by neutralizing acids, helping keep breath fresh for hours.
Other findings from the survey found that:
• 83 percent of those who brush their teeth at work do so after lunch while the second most popular occasion to do so is right after breakfast (28 percent of respondents).
• Men are more likely than women to have a power toothbrush at the office (instead of a manual one), as 24 percent of males responding said they use a power toothbrush in the office washroom, while only 13 percent of females responded the same.
• Approximately 29 percent of those who keep a toothbrush at the office claim they brush more than once a day.
