Colgate-Palmolive has handed over 2,000 Bright Smiles, and Bright Futures kits to the dental department of Nadi Hospital and an additional 3,000 kits to the Lautoka Hospital dental department.

Colgate-Palmolive says this significant contribution underscores their commitment to improving oral health standards and promoting good oral hygiene practices across Fiji and the Pacific.

They say they are thrilled to roll out a series of engaging outreach events aimed at raising awareness and providing essential oral health resources to communities in need.

Colgate-Palmolive says together, with their esteemed partners such as the Fiji National University, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, and the Fiji Dental Association, they are championing a brighter, healthier future for all.

While acknowledging Colgate-Palmolive for its steadfast support in promoting oral health across Fiji, Ministry of Health says this donation will undoubtedly enhance the capacity of their dental departments to provide essential care and education to communities, particularly as we celebrate World Oral Health Day.

The Ministry is encouraging everyone to prioritize oral health and join hands with Colgate-Palmolive in spreading the joy of healthy smiles.
