Make Teaching Oral Disease Prevention Your New Year Resolution

ExpertClick News Release: Make Teaching Oral Disease Prevention Your New Year Resolution

Campbelltown, South Australia (EXPERTCLICK) December 26, 2012 – Millions of children and adults throughout the world again this year, 2012, needed treatment for easily preventable oral disease because they have never been taught oral disease prevention. Australian Dental Association S.A. President, Angela Pierce said “The best investment anyone can make in oral health is in teaching and prevention……early intervention will lead to a generation of children who won’t be as reliant on oral care in the future.” Oral Health Care Educator and Author Dr. Garth Pettit reduced teaching resources prices in a 2013 oral health promotion. Reviewer Diane Donovan wrote, in her Five Star reviews for How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? eBooks, “Any educator or parent seeking an oral health program directed to the young will find this entire set a winner”.

Dr. Pettit says “Since 2002 my advice for mandatory oral health education for children has been ignored and I was encouraged by Dr. Angela Pierce’s supportive comments”. However to address that oral disease crisis, early 2001, the Australian Government ignored Dr. Pierce’s advice and opted only for a $10bn plan for treatment of oral disease. ” During 2012 similar situations of crisis-high levels of oral disease in children and adults were announced in U.S.A. and in the U.K. Each prompted another “Brush Your Teeth” campaign.

The Author claims “Brush Your Teeth is an out-of-date, 500 year old tooth cleaning instruction. Children deserve the best oral hygiene advice and teaching oral disease prevention is a top priority for their education. How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth introduce children to their ideal oral hygiene instruction, Paint Your Mouth. These resources for teaching oral disease prevention are, in the words of reviewer Diane Donavan: “Unique and unparalleled in nature or source…..They are winners”. Another Five Star reviewer, Cindy Wolfe Boynton, ForeWord Clarion Reviews, writes: “How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 1 thru 12 is a well-written, effective, and valuable learning tool for adults and children alike”.

How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 1 of 12 to How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 12 of 12 have each been awarded Five Star Reviews by Reviewer Diane Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer MBR. The eBook How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? 1 thru 12, which combines all twelve of the previous books into one convenient eBook has been awarded Five Star Reviews by Reviewer Diane Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer MBR and by Cindy Wolfe Boynton, ForeWord Clarion Reviews. Both reviewers have recommended them to both children and adults.

“Adults will certainly benefit from reading these eBooks.” says the Doctor. “Most have never been formerly educated in the basics of oral disease prevention”. “But in particular they should be alert to long term, low grade, mild, gum diseases which have been proven, by many researchers, to contribute to common chronic diseases including heart attacks, strokes, atherosclerosis, and diabetes. Adults quickest and easiest way to prevent these health problems is to read How Do I Look After My Kids Teeth? eBooks”.

In July 1996 the Australian author, Dr. Garth Pettit, received a phone call from his daughter who informed him that his 3 year old granddaughter had been diagnosed with mild tooth decay in an upper front baby tooth. They were living many miles apart, two full day trips by car. The doctor was angry with himself and with the lack of any decent oral health education available for children or parents.

Dr. Pettit then decided he would end his five years of retirement from private dental practices. He created a mission: Prevent Oral Diseases in Children. Then he set about seeking employment in the Government sector where he would be involved with children, their parents and their schools. In January 1997 he took up duties as District Dental Officer, East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory of Australia and was based in Nhulunbuy, a very beautiful coastal and bauxite mining town. The author thought it to be ideal for his research.

The Nhulunbuy Dental Clinic staff, which included three dentists, serviced several remote, Aboriginal Communities which were accessible only by aircraft. A fourth dentist responsible to him was based on Groote Eylandt. This dentist’s position was half Government and half private practice.

To concentrate more on his research the author, in early 1999, relocated to this position. It was here, in 1999, where he performed a Strength-Weakness-Opportunity-Threat analysis on the instruction Brush Your Teeth, found it to be out-of-date (1497!) and created a better oral hygine instruction Treat Your Mouth. Later changed that to Treat Your While Mouth and finally changed to Paint Your Mouth….because kids just loved the idea to paint your mouth.

The Author’s most recent five star reviewed titles added to his Amazon account are:
Mothers Teach Foetus All About A Smile. Teaching Oral Disease Prevention
GarGar The Dentist Toddlers Activity Books. Book a
GarGar The Dentist Toddlers Activity Books. Book b
Teaching Oral Disease Prevention. 1 of 12 etc. to 12 of 12
