MADISON, N.J. and ARDMORE, Pa. — The Natural Dentist, a line of therapeutic oral care products, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Breastcancer.org, a leading online expert resource for comprehensive information and support on breast health and breast cancer. The goal of the partnership is to raise awareness about the oral complications that often occur during cancer treatments, and to provide patients with the necessary knowledge and resources to manage these side effects, which can compromise health and quality of life.
During cancer treatment, cells lining the mucus membrane are not replaced as quickly as needed, leaving the mouth especially susceptible to mouth sores, infections, and bleeding gums.
"When a loved one was diagnosed with cancer, I saw personally how mouth pain during treatment could be severe enough to affect a person's ability to eat, drink, chew, and speak," says Kelly Kaplan, president of Revive Personal Products Company, LLC and distributer of the Natural Dentist. "I'm pleased to partner with Breastcancer.org to raise awareness about this issue and applaud their dedication to helping women and their loved ones understand and manage all aspects of breast cancer."
The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse, in particular, is recommended by the medical experts at Breastcancer.org because of its unique combination of medicinal herbs and aloe which both soothe and relieve mouth irritations without artificial colors or flavors, and without alcohol.
"As the leading online resource for breast health and breast cancer, Breastcancer.org provides expert-reviewed information about a range of topics affecting women before, during, and after cancer treatment," says Rita Lusen, vice president of corporate partnerships and marketing for Breastcancer.org. "There is a real need for accurate information about the benefits of proper oral care during cancer treatment, and partners like the Natural Dentist help our organization deliver on the mission and better serve the community-at-large."
