Homeless and vulnerable people across the UK are receiving free bottles of mouthwash thanks to a charity partnership between CleanCert Hygiene Ltd (CHL) and Dentaid.

For an added Christmas cheer this year, CHL is donating a bottle of OraWize+ for distribution across Dentaid’s UK clinics for every bottle bought by dental professionals in November and December*.

The dental rinse is alcohol free and can be used before, during and after dental treatment. OraWize+ reduces oral microbial loads, and can also be used for dry sockets, endodontic and periodontal treatment. It is also non-cytotoxic so is ideal for use by the immunocompromised and vulnerable.

Dentaid’s mobile units visit night shelters, soup kitchens and hostels with volunteer dental professionals providing emergency treatment and oral health advice for people experiencing homelessness. Dentaid also runs dental clinics for refugees and asylum seekers, victims of domestic violence, fishing communities, people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and retired military personnel.

“We are very grateful to CleanCert Hygiene for this generous donation, which means that each of our patients can be offered a bottle of mouthwash,” said Sue Smith, Dentaid’s UK development manager. “Our patients often say that using a mouthwash, in addition to brushing their teeth, would make them feel more confident. We already give every patient a toothbrush, toothpaste and interdental brushes, along with oral health advice, and it’s great they can now have dental rinse mouthwash too.”

“The pandemic has unfortunately exacerbated variations in access to dental treatment in the UK. We are passionate about reaching the sectors that Dentaid provide treatment into, and OraWize+’s use throughout dental treatment perfectly complements Dentaid’s amazing work,” says Simon Davies, CHL’s commercial director and founder. “This promotion allows all dental professionals to help support Dentaid during the festive season by simply ordering a bottle of OraWize+ for themselves – it couldn’t be simpler.”

CHL also supports Dentaid by providing other infection and prevention control products for its mobile dental units.

“CHL has been a generous supporter of Dentaid,” added Andy Evans, CEO. “And we’re grateful for this new ‘1-4-1’ OraWize+ Christmas donation scheme, which will benefit all our patients.”

 

OraWize+ available in 250ml, 1L* and 5L* bottles. Dentaid promotion * only
