Partner Spotlight
“We’re thrilled to have Primus & Blue Sky engaged with TeamSmile, they are a logical fit for TeamSmile, as Primus and Blue Sky are highly engaged with dentists throughout the country. It’s wonderful to see that they are using their platform as a force for good in communities throughout the country.” TeamSmile Executive Director John McCarthy.

When the opportunity to partner with TeamSmile was presented, it was an immediate yes! We love the mission of TeamSmile and know that our partnership is helping impact the lives of thousands of children across the country! Primus has had the privilege of helping hundreds of dentists build their offices, and through these relationships over the past twenty years have come to learn just how vital proper oral health is to everyone. This is especially true for children, as good oral health practices are critical to their long-term well being and confidence. " Jason Drewelow, President & CEO of Primus & Blue Sky.

“As a brand, PURELL is committed to equipping all healthcare environments with safe and effective solutions for germ control and infection prevention. When we learned of the opportunity to partner with TeamSmile, we were immediately excited at the chance to support their mission of providing children in need with top quality dental care." Mitch Barley, Non-Acute Marketing Director, GOJO Healthcare.

About Gojo Purell:
Our story begins in Akron, Ohio, during World War II. Goldie Lippman was a supervisor in one of Akron's many rubber factories, manufacturing life rafts and rubber products for the war effort, where she and her co-workers discovered how difficult it was to clean their hands after a day’s work. The men who had worked in the rubber factories before the war had dipped their hands in chemicals like kerosene and benzene at the end of a shift in order to remove the graphite and carbon black. These harsh chemicals took a toll on workers’ hands, and Goldie and her husband Jerry set out to find a better solution. This kindled the spirit of innovation that led to the founding of GOJO in 1946.
Everything we do is founded on The GOJO Purpose: Saving Lives and Making Life Better Through Well-Being Solutions.
