"We’re so excited about this for our residents and can’t thank Primal Health enough! This will be such a huge help right now.” - Kate H-Sones, RN, Director of Nursing, Heritage of Edina, MN.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) May 22, 2020
MN biotechnology company, Primal Health, LLC has donated over $10K of pHossident™ dental hygiene lozenges to three local senior care facilities - Saint Therese of Woodbury, Heritage of Edina in Edina, MN and Heritage Specialty Care in Cedar Rapids, IA. The donation kicks off their COVID-19 BODO (Buy-one-donate-one) Project, which will continue supplying senior living facilities in need.
Daily Dental Care pHossident™ prebiotic dental hygiene lozenges are clinically proven to clean the mouth and promote oral health. Built by a microbiologist for her loved ones that suffered illnesses directly related to dental disease, they are fully consumable, safe and effective supplemental dental hygiene for the entire family.
Senior living facilities are faced with the very difficult task of maintaining dental hygiene during the pandemic. The medical, psychological, social and economic impact of poor dental hygiene is far-reaching and problematic in the aging population. Over 70% of Americans 65+ have gum disease and 20% have untreated tooth decay. These conditions can lead to countless medical problems, such as aspiration pneumonia, stroke, diabetes, cancer, dementia and more.
"We’re so excited about this for our residents and can’t thank Primal Health enough! This will be such a huge help right now,” said Kate H-Sones, RN, Director of Nursing, Heritage of Edina, MN.
The initial donation kicks off Primal’s COVID-19 BODO Project (Buy-One-Donate-One) - Senior Dental Care Initiative. Primal will supply each facility with a month’s worth of product to supplement residents’ and healthcare staff’s dental hygiene needs during this difficult time, when managing daily dental hygiene is extremely difficult.
Emily Stein, CEO, Primal Health, said, “The BODO Project will allow us to continue supplying the highly vulnerable senior population during the COVID-19 pandemic with a dental hygiene product. For every bottle - 1 month supply - sold through our website, http://www.dailydentalcares.com, a bottle will be donated to a facility in need.”
Primal plans on expanding its donations to other affected facilities across the country, as well.
