States because of
with their teeth? (In Canada it's estimated that 14.69 million hours of
school are missed each
year.) It is important to know that, as children grow, dental needs
change—the "From Drool to
School" video provides some great tips for babies all the way up to
elementary school-age kids.

New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, and Tennessee.
Tooth decay is the most common disease children experience. The Time To Brush
video provides tips
parents of young children about selecting the right toothbrush, how much
toothpaste to use,
brushing techniques, and tips for how
to brush your toddlers teeth (trust us – you haven’t thought of these
moves!). The video was
by From the First Tooth, a pediatric oral health initiative promoting
oral health of
toddlers and preschool children.
