OXNARD, CALIF. – It’s on! The search for the ugliest dental bib clip in America, that is. Low-down dirty characters like “Rusty Chain”, “Bite Midler”, “Clip Cardashian” and “Eric Bib Holder” are among the contestants in a competition that is all for a good cause – breast cancer screening and diagnosis. In DUX Dental’s fifth annual Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze campaign, members of the public and the dental community are invited to raise money for Mammograms In Action by voting for the ugliest dental bib clip in America.
With the click of a mouse anyone can vote for the dental bib clip they find most offensive. In turn, DUX Dental will give a one-dollar donation to Mammograms In Action for each vote. Mammograms In Action is a non-profit breast cancer organization whose mission it is to provide funding for low-income and uninsured women and men who need screening and/or diagnostic procedures for the detection of breast cancer. Voting is open now at www.bibezeforboobeze.com and runs until Oct. 31, 2013.
“Research shows that despite everyone’s best efforts to help America’s dental bib clips get clean, they are still a source of bacteria in the dental office,” said Stacey Williams, director of marketing and sales for DUX Dental. “During last year’s Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze campaign dental offices around the country sent in hundreds of traditional bib holders in exchange for a donation to Mammograms In Action. We couldn’t believe how dirty, rusty and old some of the clips we received were. That was the inspiration for this year’s campaign.”

Mammograms In Action has a two-fold mission. It is committed to raising awareness and diagnosis of breast cancer in symptomatic people who are under the age of 40, and who thus often don’t meet the current requirements for screening that favor patients over 40. Secondly, the organization provides funding for screening and diagnostic procedures for people who otherwise don’t qualify for funding from the government or other charitable resources. These recipients have typically been turned away from screening because of their age, inability to pay, or because they have lost their health insurance and have no other means of payment.

About Mammograms In Action
Mammograms In Action is a 501(c)3 non-profit breast cancer organization whose mission it is to raise awareness of the incidence of breast cancer under the age of 40, and provide resources to those that typically would not have access to screening and diagnostic procedures for preventative purposes.
Zionna Munoz founded the organization in 2009 after her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 26. Due to her young age, there was little concern about the potential of breast cancer and she experienced many challenges in accessing breast health care services. Her courageous journey and strong survivor spirit inspired the creation of Barbells for Boobs and the Mammograms In Action® Grant Program as a proactive voice and supportive resource in the fight against breast cancer.
