The Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, with support from Pepsodent, held its 90th annual conference in Umuahia, Abia State, from the November 6th – 10th, 2017, as speakers at the event emphasized the importance of excellent oral hygiene, and focusing on the importance of brushing twice daily.

Themed ‘Medicines Availability and National Security’, the conference featured discussions on a personal approach to combat toothaches and plaque build-up, as health experts at the event deliberated on measures to address health issues such as the prevalence of gum disease and tooth decay in Nigeria.

In a statement, the Brand Manager, Pepsodent, Ogechukwu Anozie stated that with the organisation’s key mission to be a dependable healthcare provider of quality, safe and cost-effective drugs and health information in the country, Pepsodent, as a leading health vendor, strongly supports the responsibility of securing faster and equitable access to oral healthcare for all Nigerians. “Unilever is committed to doing business in a sustainable way and improving the lives of the Nigerian people, and our partnership with the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria is intended to create awareness about the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene” she concluded.

Through the Pepsodent Brush Day & Night School Programme, the brand has a long-term goal to improve the oral health of ten million children in the country by 2020. One of the highlights during the conference was the launch of the new Closeup variant ‘Cool Breeze’, a new toothpaste from Unilever that contains anti-bacterial mouthwash formula to give cool and fresh breath for 12 hours.
