These really are great ads to help little people and their parents learn the importance of oral health. We can change lives by spreading the word that “Prevention is Good Medicine!”

“You could save a kid from a lifetime of tooth pain.”

Oral Health Cooking Lesson

Oral Health Bike Riding

Oral Health Manners

Oral Health Dressing Lesson

These US Ad Council ads are fantastic at raising awareness of the importance of Oral Health.

Share them with friends and remind them to see their dentist and dental hygienist regularly for preventive visits.

Resources for Parents

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists have launched a site to help parents make decisions regarding the oral health of their children.

mychildrensteeth.org

The AAPD site provides answers to questions like:

-what foods promote decay?

-should my child wear a mouthguard when playing sports?

-what should I do if a baby tooth gets knocked out?

-what should I do if a permanent tooth gets knocked out?

-what is decay?

-why is tartar a problem?

Particularly useful is their search engine that allows parents to find a pediatric dentist in their zip code. Every child should have a dental home by age 1.

Brush 2 minutes, twice per day!

Thirty-Five dental organizations have come together with the US Ad Council to develop the first ever dental PSA ads directed at children and their parents to increase awareness of the need to brush twice a day for two minutes for a lifetime of oral health.

www.2min2x.org

 
On their site or their YouTube channel they provide a variety of fun and entertaining videos that stress the importance of brushing.
 
 
The children and their parents will also see ads on TV that emphasize the importance of brushing.
 
 
If we can get children to recognize the importance of oral health, they should be able to keep their teeth for a lifetime. We must convince them to “Brush the ones they want to keep.”
 
Brush 2min2x and see your dentist and dental hygienist every six months. Preventive dentistry is good dentistry!

See you at the ADA Meeting

We’re in Booth 510 at the American Dental Association Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX.

Swing by and visit with our new Texas representative Mitzi Bass. Ask Mitzi, Janie Wright, RDH, or Bill Berry about our new PIVOT Contra Disposable Prophy Angles. Finally, you can have a Contra style angle without paying a premium. You can also mix and match with other PIVOT prophy angles to take advantage of our 4+1 promotional offer.

Also ask to see the new, clearer, VELLA 5% Sodium Fluoride Varnish formula. We have found a way to make it look better, taste better and feel better. The net result is patients will be more compliant so they can experience the full benefit of the fluoride. You can also receive a box of 35 VELLA applications when you purchase a box of 100. VELLA Fluoride Varnish now comes in Spearmint, Strawberry, Melon and Bubble Gum flavors!

Reimbursing Physicians for Fluoride Varnish

Did you know that 46 out of 50 States provide Medicaid reimbursement for Physicians for dental preventive services including Fluoride Varnish? Check out this article from the Pew Charitable Trust site entitled: Reimbursing Physicians for Fluoride Varnish

Worth the read. “Fluoride varnish applied at primary medical care visits can reduce decay rates by one-third, and lead to significant cost savings in restorative dental care and associated hospital costs.”

Contact your pediatrician, pediatric dentist or your dental professional to learn more!

See you at the AAPD Meeting!

We Love seeing our Pediatric Dentist offices and their dental hygiene staffs every year at the AAPD Meeting! This year we’re in New York at the NY Hilton in booth #1107. Stop by for samples of PIVOT Prophy Angles, VELLA Fluoride Varnish and NEXT Prophy Paste! If you can’t make the meeting click here for more information.

This is a great group. They truly Love what they do! They seem to have much more fun than the rest of the profession. You rarely ever see a picture of them without a big grin on their faces. I suppose it is because the get to work with kids all day! When you think about it, they are really establishing each child’s view of dentistry for life.

We especially like their initiative with the American Academy of Pediatrics called Dental Home by age 1. For more information on the the AAPD Dental Home program click here!

CDA Anaheim

We’re looking forward to seeing all of our loyal dental hygiene customers at the California Dental Association’s spring meeting in Anaheim, CA. on May 12-14, 2011. Visit us at booth #1641.

VELLA Fluoride Varnish is currently the fastest growing fluoride varnish brand in the United States! Patients want a varnish that looks invisible and feels better. Experience the better “mouth feel” of VELLA combined with the smoother, goes on like a high quality nail polish (think OPI versus the cheap stuff) application and the easy to open packaging and you’ll switch too. If it looks good and feels good, your dental hygiene patients will be compliant instead of picking it off when they get to the car.
