U.S. Armed Forces overseas will receive donated BreathRx.

CULVER CITY, California--Discus Dental has announced donating approximately $10,000 in oral hygiene products to Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends care packages to members of the U.S. Armed Forces overseas.

By collecting donations from attendees at recent trade shows (AAE, AACD and CDA), and dedicating a percentage of all show sales to this effort, Discus has sent hundreds of units of BreathRx Oral Hygiene Products to Operation Gratitude.

“The extremely arid climates in which our troops serve cause very dry mouths and throats. said Carolyn Blashek, founder of Operation Gratitude.“As a result, some of the most requested items from our men and women overseas are oral hygiene products. We are delighted that Discus has made such a generous donation to our Armed Forces.”

The donation included a range of BreathRx products, including mouth rinse, toothpaste and floss. All of the products in the BreathRx system are powered by Zytex and cetylpyridinium chloride, a proprietary blend of ingredients designed to eliminate bad breath at the source and neutralize odors. BreathRx products are 100% alcohol-free and sugar-free.

Operation Gratitude is the California-based non-profit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages of snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to U.S. Service Members deployed in hostile regions such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and on military ships at sea.
