University Pediatric Dentistry is one of ten sites in America that has been chosen by Colgate-Palmolive Co. to run a toothpaste study!

We are seeking children between the ages of 10 and 14 to be screened for participation. If your child qualifies, they will receive free toothpaste and toothbrushes over the course of a year, and a free exam every three months! Children are compensated for their time, even if they don’t qualify. 

Participating children will brush twice per day for two minutes for the duration of the study, and bring their toothpaste and toothbrush to each appointment.

If you’d like to learn more, call the research coordinator, Allana, at (716) 906-0171, or email her at [email protected]
