“Teaching Oral Disease Prevention 10 of 12” is the tenth in a series of twelve Teaching Oral Disease Prevention, Amazon Kindle, eBooks written by retired dentist Dr. Garth Pettit, Author, Oral Health Care Educator to fulfill a mission he began in 1996, Prevent Oral Diseases in Children.

The author’s research led him to put the oral hygiene instruction Brush Your Teeth to a SWOT analysis which indicated the instruction does not clean the entire mouth of unwanted debris, nor leave the whole mouth protected against oral diseases and therefore could be a cause of oral diseases. He created the instruction, Treat Your Mouth, later changed the name to Treat Your Whole Mouth and more recently changed it to Paint Your Mouth....because children became thrilled and excited by the thought and wanted to ‘paint your mouth’.

Each of these eBooks is an oral health care education resource children themselves can read and understand but preferably teaching oral health and teaching oral disease prevention is best achieved with supervision by parents and, or educators.
In this tenth eBook of the twelve book series this is what children will learn:

Lesson 8's topic is 'Harmful, Helpful and Harmless X.Y.Z.' and moves past the scary decay topics of the prior lessons to discuss the hopeful facts that some STIX, some Y and some ZED can be helpful rather than harmful.

It teaches which X. Y. Z. are harmful, which are helpful and which are harmless, and it discusses how to gain access to the helpful ones, from floride water to milk.

Lists of harmful foods and drinks to be avoided accompany discussions of making wise choices and avoiding sweets shops and other places filled with poor food choices that lead to decay.

If such foods are consumed kids are advised to include a routine to paint their mouths quickly to avoid hours of build-up and decay opportunities.

Some of the places where harmful substances reside are intrinsic to the author's native country, such as a 'Tuck Shop' or 'Milk Bar'; but cartoon drawings clarify the intent and they will be no problem for young international readers.

In the Activity section kids are invited to list the ingredients they like to eat or drink, and to assess them for their health qualities. They're invited to examine labels to look for clues to healthy contents, and invited to make wiser choices to substitute better foods and drinks.

Oral questions and concluding cartoons reinforce all the concepts of good food choices and their link to dental health.
“Teaching Oral Disease Prevention. 10 of 12” is another fun-filled lesson for children’s oral health education and oral disease prevention.
