Natural Dentist to debut first TV ads
MEDFORD, Mass. The Natural Dentist is promoting its line of natural oral care products with its first television advertisement that will air nationally this spring and fall with a $3 million campaign.
The 30-second TV spot highlights the benefits of natural oral care and leverages a clinical study conducted by The Forsyth Institute, which, according to the company, suggests that The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse met or exceeded the germ-killing effectiveness of the leading brand.
“The bar has been raised—natural products now need to prove that they are as effective as the leading brands. Our advantage is ‘ingredient goodness,’” stated Nancy Rosenzweig, chief executive officer of The Natural Dentist, which makes four mouth rinses and five toothpastes.
