KUDOS: Tribeca Holistic Dentist Wins Best Product Award

Tribeca Holistic Dentist Wins Best Product Award

Dr. Lewis Gross, on the leading edge of the holistic dentistry movement for 35 years, can add “inventor” to his list of accomplishments. Alka-White mouthwash, which he designed as a safe and natural way to fight oral acidity and prevent tooth decay and gum disease, was named Best New Dental Product at the 2018 Indie Beauty Expo.

Alka-White is a mint-flavored, naturally effervescent tablet designed to balance oral pH for better breath and healthier gums and teeth. It includes powerful natural ingredients like essential coconut, peppermint and tea tree oils, as well as potassium and magnesium to promote remineralization. It does not contain fluoride or any of the other chemicals commonly found in toothpastes and mouthwashes. Hydrating, soothing and desensitizing, Alka-White is vegan and safe for daily use, Gross says. Each box of Alka-White contains 30 tablets, enough for two five-day cleanses.

Gross says he developed Alka-White after realizing that people need a safe and convenient way to counteract unhealthy drinking and eating habits that, despite Americans’ growing health consciousness, only seem to be getting worse.

The most important thing about Alka-White is that it’s made for real people and their lifestyles, Gross says. “Unlike many other cleanses, Alka-White does not ask you to change the way you eat, think and drink,” he explains. “In fact, it’s made to help restore your mouth’s alkalinity and health in response to how everyone actually eats and drinks. People want to do the best they can to maintain oral health, and so we created Alka-White in response to that need.”
