Campbelltown, South Australia (PRWEB)
November 15, 2011

With the release of his Oral 7™ Hygiene: Paint Your Mouth – Visits 1 ti 12 to GarGar The Dentist series of eBooks, Dr.th Pettit hopes to bring an end to common oral diseases, tooth decay, gum diseases, bad breath and stained teeth in both children and adults.
“These issues have been abundant for never-ending generations but are predicted to decline soon, rapidly and permanently,” says Dr. Garth Pettit who, in 1996, ended a five year long retirement with a mission ‘To Prevent Oral Diseases in Children”. Í hope that through my Oral 7™ Hygiene: Paint Your Mouth eBooks people around the world will change the way they view oral health”.

In 2002, Dr. Pettit self-published a set of 10 paperback books, Visits 1 to 10 To GarGar The Dentist. Since t hen, these books have been revised and two more have been added. Now, all twelve have been published as eBooks for the Amazon Kindle, titled Oral 7 Hygiene: Paint Your Mouth Visits 1 to 12 to GarGar The Dentist. Further, the books have been published in six different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.

With the recent announcement that OverDrive and Amazon have launched Kindle® compatibility with Library eBooks, which allow public and school libraries to reach millions of new readers, Dr. Pettit is ecstatic. “eBook technology makes it fun and easy for parents, teachers and schools to teach children Oral™ Hygiene with no lesson preparation required. This is an ideal situation to expose children to the Paint Your Mouth,” said the Doctor.

In the eBooks title, Oral 7 Hygiene: Paint Your Mouth Visits 1 to 12 to GarGar The Dentist, ‘Oral 7™’ is a reference to the seven internal oral surfaces from which harmful plaque must be removed and replaced with helpful plaque to achieve optimal oral hygiene. ‘Paint Your Mouth’ is the oral hygiene instruction created by Dr. Pettit to replace the misleading 15th Century instruction ‘Brush Your Teeth’, an instruction indicated by a SWOT analysis to be a cause of oral diseases.

“At the conclusion of Visit 12 To GarGar The Dentist, children will have become self-motivated to prevent oral diseases,” claims Dr. Pettit, “thus fulfilling my mission”.

All 12 Visits are also combined into one book, published in six language editions and available from Amazon stores worldwide.

“ After applying your advice, the almost total lack of plaque on my teeth is nothing short of amazing – I have struggled with this all my life,” said patient and ex-dental assistant, Judy Le Cornu.

Amazon Kindle’s 2010 prediction that their eBook sales would outstrip their paperback sales, coming earlier than was expected, convinced the author to publish his paperbacks as eBooks. The Oral 7™ Hygiene: Paint Your Mouth Visits 1 to 12 To GarGar The Dentist eBooks series is offered on Amazon to millions of Amazon customers on Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android devices, PC, and Mac which makes these eBooks easily accessible to parents.

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
Teaching Oral Disease Prevention. 1 thru 12. TThis combines all previous 12 titles into one convenient title.
