The name BYTE (brush your teeth every day) was chosen to provide a simple message that is easy to remember.

The aim of byte is to improve the dental health of at risk groups in New Zealand by providing, free to the user, packs containing a toothbrush, fluoridated toothpaste, and instructions for tooth brushing. Recipients of the byte packs need to be encouraged to brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day, every day.

The Byte Charitable Trust is a registered charitable entity (Registration Number is CC48093) with the Charities Commission, NZ.
