MIAMI, Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, so now is the time to look at how families around the country are caring for their children’s teeth. Most parents believe they are doing the right thing by opting for brands of toothpaste that will catch their child’s attention. Yet what these people are not aware of are all the hidden dangers in the mass-marketed products because of the ingredients they are made of.
“Many of the products parents buy for their children are made with ingredients that they shouldn’t have,” explains Dr. Bruno Sharp, a fourth-generation dentist who created a line of products called Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care. “Ideally, you want to use a natural product that is safe to use and made with natural non-GMO ingredients, free of parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, alcohol, gluten and fluoride.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 17 percent of children between the ages of 5-19 have untreated dental caries. Furthermore according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HSS) 41 percent of American children have some form of dental fluorosis, a white or brown mottling of the teeth caused by long term ingestion of fluoride during the time the teeth are forming.
Dr. Sharp is taking National Children’s Dental Health Month to donate 1,000 tubes of their Wild Berry Kids toothpaste to Operation Smile, a Virginia-based global medical non-profit that provides free cleft lip and clef palate surgeries to children around the world. The products will be shipped for Operation Smile’s dental missions in the Philippines and Vietnam.
“Following surgery to heal their lips, we love to be able to help children get their best start with oral hygiene care,” says J. Lindsay Tomberg, Director of Global Philanthropy for Operation Smile. “We are grateful for the donation of these natural products that will help many children create good life-long habits in caring for their teeth.”
Dr. Sharp created a line of oral hygiene products to give people a healthier alternative. His product line includes children’s toothpaste, adult toothpaste, fresh mint mouthwash, and dental tape.
