During the International Health and Medical Media Awards ceremony in New York, the “Dental Health” episode of the “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind” television series sponsored by Tom’s of Maine, earned a Freddie Award.

The “Dental Health” episode focuses on the latest science that links oral health and overall body health. It features Ray Williams, DMD, a professor of periodontology at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. 

“We are pleased to associate Tom’s of Maine with both Dr. Williams and the award winning ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’ program on dental health,” says Tom Chappell, co-founder and CEO of Tom’s of Maine. “We are committed to bringing the latest information on oral-systemic health to our consumers, to providing effective oral health products made from plants and minerals, and to doing our part to address the lack of access to oral care through our Dental Health for All™ program.” 

Tom’s of Maine has been a sponsor of the “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind” series, the most often scheduled health-care oriented program on public television. Since its release in August 2005, the program has aired more than 150 times in more than 106 million households across the country.
