Your Commissary Welcomes Bright Smiles, Bright Futures!

Your Commissary is proud to be part of the military community, supporting the men and women of the armed forces and their families. That’s why we work hand-in-hand with our partners – including our industry partners, such as our vendors, and our military resale partners, the exchange services – to actively participate in the military community and give back. Recently, we attended one such event at the Fort Lee Commissary, which we wanted to share.

Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Mobile Dental Van

The Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® program has had a stunning global impact, reaching more than 1 billion children in 80 countries! The program’s nine mobile dental vans are equipped to screen more than 10 million kids per year for common oral health conditions. The vans feature dental cartoons and graphics inside and out to help create a welcoming and friendly environment for the kids who are being screened.

These mobile dental vans travel to rural and urban communities across the United States to do this, and we are proud to partner with them to bring this program to our military customers!

Dental Screenings & Education

Participating kids receive free two-minute dental checkups, treatment referrals (if appropriate) and educational materials, such as a bag containing Colgate® kids’ brushing supplies and instructions.

Upcoming Mobile Dental Van Visits to Commissaries

These mobile dental vans will be stopping at multiple commissaries in the coming months, so take a look at the schedule below to see if it will be coming to a location near you! Remember, details are subject to change, so we encourage you to contact the store before traveling to the event to confirm the schedule.
