Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 14 For Parents and Educators
Campbelltown, South Australia (EXPERTCLICK) May 23, 2012 – Dr. Garth Pettit, Oral Health Care Educator, Author of Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 12 of 12. Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 14.
Kids’ Tooth Decay SOS # 14: “My daughter will be 6 in July. She has never had a cavity but at her cleaning last week she had 3 small to medium sized ones in between her teeth.” Maggie.
Prevention of the common oral diseases tooth decay, gum diseases, bad breath and stained teeth is simple if parents and educators know what oral hygiene instruction and what oral health care education to give to teach their children. The dental profession’s advice to prevent oral diseases, since the invention in the year 1498 of the first bristle toothbrush, has been “Brush Your Teeth”.
Children’s oral health care education, if at all, has been based on that advice; “Brush Your Teeth”. It has never changed! It is now timely for a change. “Brush Your Teeth” is a misleading oral hygiene instruction. Many people, taking it literally and simply brushing only teeth, are candidates for dental treatment throughout their lifetimes.
“That this instruction “Brush Your Teeth” has not succeeded in the prevention of oral diseases in children (and in adults!) is evidenced by the sheer, and ever- increasing, demand for treatment of all common oral diseases: both by children and by adults” says Author.
Dr. Garth Pettit advises parents and educators, in Kindle eBook, How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 12 of 12, to instruct children to “Treat Your Whole Mouth” or better still for children, “Paint Your Mouth” and to provide children with an oral health education based on that instruction. The Author recommends reading this recent review of this eBook.

THIS eBOOK HAS RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING REVIEW:
“Lesson 10 concludes GarGar’s instructions to kids on how to fight tooth decay, and provides a history of his ‘paint your mouth’ concept. It identifies problems with the simple ‘brush your teeth’ approach which leaves out hygiene of the entire mouth, and discusses GarGar’s inspiration for his different program of all-mouth dental hygiene practices.
It also summarizes the previous lessons, provides the lyrics and melody to the song, and tells how GarGar was inspired to revise his dental instruction books published in 2002 to embrace techniques that were more child-friendly and fun.
Having the entire music to the song ‘For Your Smile to Shine’ assures that parents, teachers, schools and musicians will be able to produce the song for classrooms and activities.
The chapter concludes with a special “all lessons” Certificate Of Oral Health Excellence certifying that the child has read and absorbed all the lessons.
These books are reviewed individually because they can each stand alone in offering a segment of oral health instruction for the young picturebook reader accompanied by parental or teacher assistance, but their real power lies in the entire lesson plan taken as a whole.
The step-by-step building blocks of oral health understanding are carefully constructed with the young child in mind, reinforced by activities and quizzes, and provide an entire, unique program unparalleled in scope and nature.
Having the entire lesson plan available in other languages assures its interest to a wide audience around the world, making this entire set a powerful presentation.”
