We at United Treatment Centers feel that by joining influential associations such as the Green Energy Council we are building the foundation to the future success of the company."
"If the Aquafreedom toothbrush were used by every single person on the Earth currently using a conventional toothbrush then we would be able to provide fresh water for generations to come!" said Ralph Avallone, President of the National Green Energy Council.
Frank Ottaviani, President of United Treatment Centers, noted, "We're pleased to be part of the Green Energy Council because the organization shares the sustainability values of United Treatment Centers.

UTC/AQUAFREE's Waterless Toothbrush (www.aquafreetoothbrush.com) is an innovative and environmentally-friendly dental health product that does not require water while brushing. Considering there are over 2 billion people in the world that do not have access to sanitary water, it is UTC/AQUAFREE's mission to contribute to making water conservation practical and convenient. By using the Waterless Toothbrush, consumers can help in global water conservation efforts while benefiting from a more effective teeth cleaning. According to a study published by the Journal of American Dental Association [JADA: 135(7): pp.1023-1029], the use of liquid dentifrice cleans teeth 35% better than when using traditional toothpaste. In addition to the important water conservation benefits, the recently introduced Waterless Toothbrush has a very large market represented by the US military (or any other nation's military), non-governmental organizations operating in the Third World, disaster relief organizations, outdoor sports enthusiasts, travelers, Federal Government agencies and people desiring daily convenience.
