Wrigley Oral Healthcare Program

Welcome to the Wrigley Oral Healthcare Program

The Wrigley Oral Healthcare Program (WOHP) partners with dental professionals worldwide, helping them improve their patients’ oral health through one additional simple and enjoyable step in their daily routine: chewing sugar-free gum after eating and drinking.

Since the 1930s, Wrigley has been leading research to understand the role of gum in oral care . Based on decades of research, today regulatory bodies, national governments, the FDI World Dental Federation and around 20 national dental associations worldwide recognize the oral care benefits of chewing sugar-free gum.
