This is the link to my video presentation:
I was extremely excited by receiving an invitation from the organizers of the 4th Asia Pacific Congress & Expo on Dental and Oral Health, July 27 – 29, 2015, Brisbane, Australia. To receive an invitation to speak on “Paint Your Mouth”, my oral hygiene instruction, was just like ‘icing on the cake’. It’s the first ever oral hygiene instruction created by a dentist! The first ‘tooth’ cleaning instruction was by a Babylonian in 3,500 BC when he created a “Chewstick. The next ‘Brush Your Teeth’ instruction was created by a Chinese Emperor in 1498 when he patented the first bristle toothbrush. His bristles were from the back of a hog’s neck and his handles were either bone or bamboo. We must get away from that era! Also the theme of the Conference, “New Challenges to Improve Dental & Oral Health Care Globally”, had me jumping up and down with joy. Despite my age; 85!!! I have spent my entire time focussed, since 1996, on a mission, “Prevent Oral Diseases in Children”, and now have numerous resources that are ready and waiting to quickly achieve the conference’s theme.
- To coincide with the conference I have scheduled the release of a new Amazon eBook titled “Oral 7 Hygiene Instructions Paint Your Mouth”.
- Already in Amazon I have numerous books that teach oral disease prevention from foetus age to old age
Also planned are books c to z of the Alphabet Series: My GarGar The Dentist Toddlers Activity Books.
