I am a teacher and was wondering if anyone knows where I can go to order dental/hygiene programs for kids?

Here you go! www.ada.org/goto/ncdhm/

It's the link to the ADA's site for Children's National Dental Health Month, which is February... you'll find lots of free stuff as well as items you can order if you want...

You may want to ask a local dentist in your area to come in and speak to the kids... they'll also show them the correct way to brush and floss, and may even hand out dental items of their own.

You can also email Oral B, Crest, Colgate, Tom's of Maine, etc.. and request samples for your class... just let them know your intentions and I'm sure they'll send you stuff!

Have fun with it, and thank you for your efforts!

Los Angeles 5th Grader Designs Winning Toothbrush in ''Be A Dental Inventor'' Contest

Tuesday January 30, 9:30 am ET

Contest Sponsored by Dr. Fresh Celebrates February's National Children's Dental Health Month

BUENA PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For eleven-year-old Crystal Gonzalez of Los Angeles, California, a toothbrush is literally a dream come true.

The fifth grader at Birdielee V. Bright Elementary has captured first prize in a toothbrush design contest sponsored by Dr. Fresh, maker of fun kid's oral care products, in celebration of February's National Children's Dental Health Month. Crystal says her winning idea for a "talking" toothbrush came to her in a dream. In the contest entitled "Be A Dental Inventor," kids were asked to design a toothbrush they thought would motivate their peers to brush thoroughly and regularly. Dr. Fresh is a Buena Park, California-based company (www.drfresh.com) known for its bright and sparkly, best-selling FireFly toothbrushes that light up and flash to encourage longer brushing.

"We've always believed that dental hygiene can and should be fun for children. Crystal's talking toothbrush encourages kids to keep on brushing with sayings like 'Mom is going to be proud,' and 'Your teeth sparkle like stars,'" says Dr. Fresh. "The contest proves once again that kids have the brightest ideas. We plan to produce Crystal's design so kids everywhere can have fun brushing with it."

Crystal will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond and trip to the Disneyland Resort. While there, she will also meet with the design team at the Dr. Fresh headquarters in nearby Buena Park. Two runners-up will each receive $250 U.S. Savings Bonds. First-runner up Craig Miller, 9, a fourth grader at Carroll Elementary in Southlake, Texas, said his toothbrush "would have an animal head at the top...a dog, cat, bird, frog or tiger," and would make the appropriate sound. Second runner-up Ricardo Kuchimpos, an eight-year-old third grader at North Hollywood's Camellia Avenue School, designed an alarm brush with rainbow lights and glowing blue stars.

Dr. Fresh manufactures a host of popular and affordable oral care and personal health products, including Fire Fly, the number two selling children's toothbrush in the nation. (www.drfresh.com.)
