Established in 2013, The Humble Co. is growing throughout the world. The products are available today in thousands of stores and dental clinics. Based in Sweden, The Humble Co. is leading a small revolution in personal care products – from design and manufacture to humility.
Many kids throughout the world have no means to care for their oral health. The dental clinic is too far away. They don’t have toothpaste and they don’t have a toothbrush. What they do have is an increasingly sugary diet. The result is often pain, tooth loss, missing school, disability, and impaired psychological and physical development.
Humble Smile Foundation, a group of dedicated dental professionals and academics, develops models whereby volunteer teams work together with local school staff to promote specific behaviour-based preventive oral health initiatives that include dietary interventions, monitored toothbrushing and clinical procedures.
Other activities include: advocacy, education; research, hand-washing and urgent oral care.
The school is transformed into an oral health promoting school. So too, the dental student volunteers undergo a learning and personal transformation.
