Teaching Oral Disease Prevention 2 of 12

Regular price $4.99
“Teaching Oral Disease Prevention. 2 of 12” is the second in the Teaching Oral Disease Prevention series of 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 second eBook of the twelve book series this is what children will learn:

Children learn the lyrics of GarGar The Dentist’s original “Mouth Painting I Will Go" song lyrics set to the music of the old “A Hunting We Will Go” song with lots of help from GarGar The Dentist and his SmileShine Gang. It is a fun MouthWise Oral Healthcare song employed to help reinforce the techniques provided in Book 1.

Fun color models in vivid fuchsia outline differences between gums and teeth and provide eye-catching images of teeth while the rollicking rhyming lyrics to the song invite kids and parents to play as they paint.

The little cartoon color animals provided in Book 1 - GarGar’s SmileShine Gang - each represent one of the seven important surfaces inside the mouth, so kids that are able to memorize their favorites will instantly know what surface GarGar is speaking about. These characters are peppered throughout the song, reinforcing basic concepts of dental hygiene.

Parents may wonder how they can use lyrics when there is no accompanying cd or musical notation, but the entire song is on YouTube and anyone can look up TheVideoDentist to hear GarGar sing “Mouth Painting I Will Go”.

It is a lively and fun sing-along that holds many lyrics but reinforces, through step-by-step musical enhancement, the entire process of mouth painting.

Australian Dental Association SA president Dr. Angela Pierce stated “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 dental care in the future.” Dr. Pierce after reviewing the Teaching Oral Disease Prevention eBook series stated: “…truly impressed with your fortitude and devotion to this worthy cause.”
