Spreading Smiles


Promoting Oral Care & Education Globally

Did you know that tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in the world? An almost entirely preventable disease, it affects 60 to 90 percent of school children and nearly all adults worldwide.

Wrigley believes that no matter who you are or where you come from, a smile can change a life. We’re working to improve access to oral care and better oral health education through the Wrigley Company Foundation’s global programs and initiatives.

Oral Care Community Service Grant Program

Since 2010, in partnership with national dental associations, we have provided care to more than 100,000 people through our Oral Care Community Service Grant Program. The program, which is supported by the Wrigley Company Foundation, empowers dental professionals to provide oral-health services and critical dental treatments to underserved children and adults in their local communities.

And, we’re committed to spreading smiles across borders. The program was first launched in the U.S. and has grown to include Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. In 2016, we were happy to announce expansion into two additional countries — Russia and Germany.
