New Orleans biotechnology company Theodent™ is giving kids around the world a great new reason to smile: chocolate-flavored toothpaste. The company unveiled its new Theodent™ Kids chocolate-flavored toothpaste on Friday, Feb 1 at its headquarters in the New Orleans Bionnovation Center, 1441 Canal Street.
“We gave the kids exactly what they asked us for. There was an overwhelming demand for a chocolate-flavored Theodent™, so we went back to the lab to develop Theodent™ Kids, specifically formulated for young mouths,” said Theodent™ President and Chief Executive Officer Arman Sadeghpour, PhD.
Dr. Sadeghpour confirmed that the cocoa extract was even more effective than fluoride on human teeth as part of his doctoral research at Tulane University. The technology is patented and available only in Theodent™ oral care products.
The DDD is a sustaining partner of the BioInnovation Center, which offers 66,000 square feet of state of the art wet-lab, office and conference space.
