About us

The NFC is an all-volunteer organization
dedicated to promoting floss and flossing.
Founded in 1996, we expanded onto the
web in 1997 and, working from a base in
Washington, DC, we now have
representatives in several states. We have
done our work up to this point without
commercial support, and we're not seeking
to be a voice for any one part of the floss
industry. We are interested in working with
industry and government health
organizations to make dental floss more
available, but the primary focus of our work
is to promote flossing, whether its done with
the finest synthetic commercial floss, or
thread from a sewing kit. At the NFC we're
dedicated to using any and all media to
spread the word, and the word is FLOSS!
Advertising can be incredibly influential,
and, if done well, there's no reason
advertising can't help people floss.

To promote flossing, we make our volunteer-
produced advertisements available to
magazines, billboards and television as a
free public service. Much of our advertising
includes our major slogan, "Help Spread
"Peace of Mouth" - Floss!" Understanding
"Peace of Mouth" is simple. Peace of mouth
is something like peace of mind, only not as
profound. A life without dental distress is
one that includes "Peace of Mouth."
Although there are many routes to this inner
(oral) peace, we believe that flossing is an
important peace-keeping tool.

We need volunteers to help with our work
promoting the wider availability of dental
floss in everyday life. We call our floss
lobbying efforts the "Flossing Policy
Initiative." This Initiative has two major goals:
1. A floss dispenser in every public
bathroom; and 2. Floss included with fast foods, including candy bar packaging. We could
use input from people with vending
machine; food packaging; or grant-writing
experience. - See web...
