Colgate Total has joined forces with popular actress and comedian, Yvonne Orji, to help consumers get and stay Totally Ready just in time for Valentine’s Day. This new “Totally Ready” campaign informs consumers that with their whole mouth health—healthy gums, teeth, cheeks, and tongue—they are “Totally Ready” for whatever life brings them. The multitalented comedic actress was one of the most talked about breakout stars in 2017.

“I am so excited about this partnership with Colgate Total,” shared Yvonne. “A healthy smile has always been important to me. My healthy smile makes me feel good and, when I feel good, I feel totally ready for whatever comes my way. Last year was a really good year for me. I want to take that and make it bigger and better for 2018. So, not only do I need to be totally ready, I know that I must stay ready.”

With the upcoming taping of the highly anticipated third season of the hit cable show in which she co-stars, writing and executive producing her own sitcom, and her role in an upcoming comedy film set to be released in the fall, Orji knows she must be Totally Ready in 2018.

As part of this new campaign, Orji will be sharing her “Totally Ready” moments on Instagram and will be featured in an upcoming “Totally Ready” video that will be featured on, one of the leading online destinations for African American women.

“Colgate is thrilled to partner with this multitalented star as we witness her amazing journey,” said Carla Kelly, General Manager, Multicultural Marketing, Colgate-Palmolive.

Colgate Total toothpaste is clinically proven to help prevent or reverse gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease. It is the only FDA-approved1 and American Dental Association-accepted toothpaste to help prevent gingivitis. With regular, twice daily brushing, gum health can improve in as little as four weeks3 with Colgate Total.

Top 5 ‘Soul Swipe’ Dating Tips:


It’s easy for immediate attraction to occur, but you can’t let your guard down easy.

The chase won’t be fun if you’re no longer a mystery. Remember, people always

want what they can’t have.


Who doesn’t like some fun? Of course they want you to be serious about your career

and relationships, but they don’t want someone that’s constantly serious. It’s

important to make people laugh and most importantly learn to laugh at yourself.

Loosen up and have some fun!


Don’t listen to people when they say “Charm can’t be taught” or “You either have it

or you don’t”. Charm is all about being confident, respectful, and polite. You can

easily acquire it by being on your best behavior. It’s amazing what a simple please

and thank you can do.


Integrity has been voted as one of the most important qualities men and women

look for in a relationship. Trust is very important, but people also want to feel

comfortable and proud about the idea of potentially introducing you to their

parents. A mother’s approval is everything. You don’t want to go through a breakup

where your former partner has Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” playing on repeat.


We know it’s tough to be the center of attention without seeming like an attention

whore. However, there are ways of stealing the scene when you’re out in public

without being too flashy or loud. Do your best to be the most well dressed person in

the room and supplement that style with your great sense of humor and an intimate

conversation. Pretty soon, nobody will be able to keep their eyes…. or hands off of
