CINCINNATI -- April 26, 2013

Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health are excited to announce their partnership with
Luke Joeckel, offensive tackle from Texas A&M, and congratulate him on being
the 2^nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Joeckel has partnered with Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health to ‘Go Pro’ with his
oral care and to help others ‘Go Pro’ in their careers, with a donation to the
international non-profit organization Dress for Success.

“Going pro in life is just as important as going pro in football and that is
why I have partnered with Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health for the ‘Go Pro’
program,” said Joeckel. “My mother has supported me throughout my football
career and I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my dreams of becoming a
professional athlete without her. In honor of my mother, I wanted to show my
support for Dress for Success and help women ‘Go Pro’ and feel confident as
they begin their new careers.”

As part of the partnership, Joeckel and Crest and Oral-B are providing a
donation to the Dress for Success organization to help women ‘Go Pro’ in their
work and life. Dress for Success is a non-profit organization that provides
professional attire and career development to disadvantaged women. Along with
the monetary donation, Crest and Joeckel are also donating Crest and Oral-B
Pro-Health products to help promote good oral health and help the
participating women feel confident as they enter the workforce.

“A healthy, confident smile can leave a lasting impression on potential
employers as we prepare women to re-enter the workforce and achieve
professional success,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide.
“We believe every woman deserves the opportunity to achieve their goals and we
are delighted to partner with Luke Joeckel and Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health to
help the women of Dress for Success ‘Go Pro.’”

“Crest and Oral-B are on a mission to help take America’s oral health from
good to pro with our Pro-Health products,” said Rishi Dhingra, P&G North
America Marketing Director. “That is why we are thrilled to partner with the
NFL, Luke Joeckel and Dress for Success on the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health ‘Go
Pro’ program. Each of these partners illustrates a key component of the ‘Go
Pro’ movement. Luke and Dress for Success exemplify how the right support
system can help you ‘Go Pro’ in life and your career. The NFL Draft provides
the largest stage in sports where the conversation is focused solely on
athletes going pro. Overall, we couldn't ask for better partners for our
program.”
