Waterpik® Supports Children's Dental Health Month With Rebate Coupons And Donations

A Head Start On a Lifetime of Good Oral Health Habits In Conjunction With America's ToothFairy Foundation

FORT COLLINS, Colo. () - Water Pik, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative personal health care products, is leading the charge to start children off on a lifetime of healthy oral hygiene. During Children's Dental Health Month, the company offered rebate coupons on its fun Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids, each of which was accompanied by a matching donation to America's ToothFairy.

The Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids (WP-260) is a custom model made for children ages 6 to 12 years of age, featuring a compact, simplified design that makes water flossing easy, even for small children. It's perfect for kids who wear braces or have trouble flossing, and fun to use every day. 20 removable cling decals let kids personalize their Water Flosser to their own tastes.

In support of National Children's Dental Health Month (February) and World Dental Health Month (March), Water Pik provided two incentives to bring the Water Flosser For Kids to homes and families everywhere. In addition to $5.00 purchase rebate coupons, good through March 31, 2015, Water Pik also donated $5.00 to America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation for each rebate redeemed. America's ToothFairy is an educational outreach organization focused on the importance of children's oral health, as well as oral disease prevention and protection for our most vulnerable children.

"You can't begin too early for a lifetime of brighter smiles and healthy gums," said Suzanne Carranza, Senior Marketing Manager for Consumer Oral Health at Water Pik. "We're proud to support the efforts of America's ToothFairy and the important mission of National Children's Dental Health month. Like Water Pik, both of these initiatives are dedicated to better oral health for children everywhere, and the Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids is a great way ensure that goal. Through these rebate coupons and donations, we hope to see more children started on a permanent road to great dental health."

The Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids features an extra safe, kid-proof electrical design, as well as easy fingertip controls on the On/Off switch and the Pressure Control System, plus a reservoir that can be used as a cover to keep the unit clean. It includes one Orthodontic Tip for braces, and one Classic Jet Tip for general cleaning. The product is backed by a two-year warranty.

For a beautiful smile, healthier gums and better check-ups, the Waterpik® Water Flosser has been clinically proven to be far more effective than traditional string floss for reducing plaque, gingivitis, and gum disease. Used in conjunction with brushing, the Water Flosser has been proven up to 3 times as effective as string floss for cleaning around braces and up to 5 times as effective as brushing alone when used with the Orthodontic Tip.

Also, clinically proven to be up to 50% more effective than traditional string floss, the Waterpik® Water Flosser removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas; especially important for kids that wear braces. The system removes hard-to reach bacteria and debris that causes bad breath.

The Waterpik® Water Flosser For Kids sells for $49.99. Consumers who purchased a unit by March 31, 2015, received a $5 rebate coupon, and in support of Children’s Dental Health Month, Water Pik donated another $5 for every rebate coupon redeemed to America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation.
