Important Information About Mobile Dental Van Program

Dear Members of the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Community:

In the midst of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Colgate remains committed to our value of caring — caring for our people, their families, their pets and the world we serve. 

As of March 17, 2020 and in accordance with guidance from global health authorities, the Bright Smiles, Bright Futures (BSBF) Children’s Oral Health Improvement Program has temporarily suspended all North America BSBF Dental Van Visits to ensure the safety of all students, schools, communities and staff members. Visits will be rescheduled for a later date. 

Our educational materials, which can be filtered by age group, are available for download on for use by  teachers, parents, professionals, and other community members. We are also exploring ways to provide critical oral health education virtually to students, teachers and families as many schools ramp up digital education programs for their students.

The BSBF team will continue to monitor this evolving situation and make adjustments to our program as needed. Our nation's public schools re-openings will be the key indicator as to when the BSBF van programs can return to full operation.


Dr. Marsha Butler

Vice President

Oral Health & Professional Relations
