Waterpik® Donates Water Flossers To Florida Mission Of Mercy For Oral Health Care Event

Two Day Event Focuses on Providing Free Dental Care To Veterans, The Underserved And Uninsured In Florida

FORT COLLINS, Colo. () Waterpik® a leader in innovative personal oral health care products for 55 years, has donated Water Flossers to the Florida Mission Of Mercy event offering free dental care to the large veteran population, poor and uninsured in the Pensacola Florida area.

The Florida mission of mercy event takes place on Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25, 2017 at Woodham Middle School, 150 E. Burgess Rd., Pensacola, FL 32503.

The Florida Mission of Mercy (FLA-MOM) is a two day clinic which provides free dental care to the underserved and uninsured in Florida – those that would otherwise go without dental care. The Florida Mission of Mercy is a first-come, first-serve event with a goal of treating 2,000 patients in two days. Every year, the Florida Mission of Mercy project is held in a different location throughout the state.

Waterpik® Water Flossers are clinically proven to clean between the teeth and below the gumline to remove bacteria and debris that cause bad breath, gingivitis and other oral health issues.

Richard Bisson, CEO of Water Pik, Inc, said “after speaking to Congressman Gaetz about this event and seeing how passionate he is in supporting military veterans, I knew Water Pik needed to get involved with this amazing project. Water Pik is always looking for ways to give back to our military veterans and the community. Good oral healthcare is not only important for cosmetic reasons, but poor oral health can lead to other health issues in the body. Water Pik’s mission is to provide people with an easy, pain-free way to help improve their oral health. By donating Water Flossers to the community, we are helping those people that may not have the means to afford the best tools for the job”.

Water Pik will donate Water Flossers to veterans and other members of the community who attend this event to help them maintain a good oral health at home.

Poor oral healthcare has been linked to many health issues in other parts of the body including:

  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease and Stroke
  • Pregnancy and Birth Complications
