We love a good entrepreneur story, but we especially love an entrepreneur who is 12 and loves healthy teeth just as much as we do!! When our friends at Zolli Pops and CBS 62’s Eye on Detroit asked Dr. Matt to be the expert Dentist in their segment on the clean teeth pops, of course we said yes! It was an honor to be asked and having nine time Emmy award winner, Carol Cain visit Laurich Dentistry was the cherry on top.
If you haven’t heard of ZolliPops or Alina Morse yet, we are so excited to share a little bit about her story. This awesome kiddo has been on Shark Tank, TheSteve Harvey Show and many other national news outlets for her simple yet, genius idea to create a lollipop that is actually good for your teeth.
When Alina Morse was 7 years old, she went to the bank with her dad and the teller offered her a lollipop. While she really wanted to accept, her parents always told her that candy was terrible for her teeth. So she asked her dad, “Why can’t we make a lollipop that’s actually good for your teeth?” And in that moment the idea for Zollipops® was born! Together, Alina and her dad set off to make delicious lollipop treats that were actually good for teeth and in 2014, the first Zollipops treat hit the shelves.
Small businesses for the win! Alina recently stopped by the @CBS62Detroit studios to talk about how she is hoping to help kids stay healthier with Zollipops. . . . . . #zollicandy #zollipops #lollipops #healthy #healthysmile #dentist #teacher #smile #smartfood #qualityingredients #health #oralcare #kids #childhood #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhood #parenting #momlife #dadlife #kidpreneur #healthymind #nutritional #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #detroit
