Oral-B(R) employees from Iowa City will celebrate Labor Day weekend with Walmart and thousands of racing fans during the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. On a mission to Engineer Healthier Smiles with American Pride, Oral-B is partnering with NASCAR driver Ryan Newman to share its manual toothbrush technology made right here in the USA.

Oral-B’s Pro-Health(R) All-in-One toothbrush is made in Iowa City and is engineered with:

  • CrissCrossTM bristles to remove 99% of plaque in hard-to-reach areas
  • End-rounded bristles to prevent scratching of gums
  • Extra-soft gum stimulators to gently massage gums
  • Thumb-grip handle that helps prevent the brush from rolling over

The majority of Oral-B’s manual toothbrushes, more than 350 million each year, are made in Iowa City with US and imported parts before making their way to Walmart shelves across America.

“It’s awesome to partner with Oral-B for another year to celebrate their commitment to engineer healthier smiles with American pride,” said Newman. “The best part is that the Oral-B manual toothbrush I use every day – the Pro-Health All-in-One – is built in Iowa City, Iowa. You’re directly supporting jobs for people when you buy American-made products, and there’s a lot of pride in that.”
