A Word From Nichole Cheroke, RDH, BS, AS
My passion is in helping patients achieve optimum health. I’ve applied Oxyfresh products with my patients over the last 10 years. The results are amazing. I’m incredibly excited to join Oxyfresh and help share how powerful this dental care line is for everyone.
Born from the idea that real dental care doesn’t need to cut corners, our products are made with only the best ingredients that science and Mother Nature have to offer.
We don’t use harsh alcohol or artificial dyes that can stain teeth. Just ingredients you can always feel good about. That’s our promise.
Too many companies make claims and don’t deliver just to get the sale. That is not what we are about. We have been helping people and their pets live happier, healthier lives for more than 30 years. We are grateful, humbled and encouraged by our loyal fans who chose to purchase our incredible products. The consistent and growing demand for Oxyfresh inspires us to be more creative and dedicated in our mission.
