About Us

CONFADENT Oral Technology, officially launched in 2017 from its home base in Denver, Colorado, has invented and successfully manufactures a great tasting and long-lasting chewing gum that maintains the efficacy of FDA-approved ingredients often found in toothpastes and mouth rinses.

CONFADENT’s proprietary chewing gum is formulated to eliminate bad breath, whiten teeth, and fight the bacteria that causes plaque and gingivitis, while maintaining an energizing fresh peppermint flavor. Regular use of CONFADENT is a safe and effective method of maintaining a clean and healthy mouth.

CONFADENT is a proud partner of Global Dental Relief, a nonprofit organization that organizes small-group international volunteer experiences for people of all ages, backgrounds, and professions. A portion of CONFADENT sales provides fluoride varnish to children around the world.

CONFADENT Oral Technology was initially conceived at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas by Cole Evans, a student enrolled in the Entrepreneurship program. In November 2015, Cole competed in Trinity’s business plan competition and won the grand prize of $30,000, beating several graduate healthcare students and undergraduate teams from the school. Next, CONFADENT decided to test their concept on a national stage at the Cupid’s Cup Competition hosted by the Founder and CEO of Under Armour, Kevin Plank. CONFADENT was one of six companies selected from over 550 national applicants to present to the panel of recognized business leaders. Evans was awarded the esteemed Cupid’s Cup Entrepreneur of the Year cash prize award.
