“At Crest and Oral-B, we know how extremely valuable hygienists are to the oral health field, and we’re thrilled to celebrate their dedication and hard work,” said Wendy Bebey, hygienist relations manager at Procter and Gamble. “As a platform for dental professionals to take their careers to the next level, CareerFusion was the ideal setting to acknowledge the great work hygienists do each and every day and to thank them for all that they do to improve the oral health cause.”

CareerFusion is a professional retreat and learning continuum for healthcare professionals seeking growth and development to enhance their career. “We’re thrilled that Crest and Oral-B partnered with us this year to engage with the dental professionals and support their career goals,” noted Beth Thompson, founder and director of CareerFusion. “CareerFusion presents dental professionals, especially dental hygienists, with the opportunity to discuss important industry topics with top oral care brands, such as Crest and Oral-B.”

Throughout the four-day conference, Crest Oral-B hosted several round-table and one-on-one discussions with the attending dental professionals to better understand their needs, how the brands could support them and what tools enable them to succeed in their profession. Furthermore, these attendees received several products to try in the weeks leading up to the event as well as a preview of a new power technology.

Lori Bernardo, RDH, of Nazareth, PA, said, “As a first time attendee at CareerFusion, I had the experience of learning about relevant products from various companies that can help me as well as my patients. After being introduced to the Pro-Health line of products from Crest and Oral-B and trying them for the first time, my mouth has never felt cleaner. I would recommend these products to my patients to help maintain a healthy mouth in between check-ups.”
