Book Description

“Teaching Oral Disease Prevention 8 of 12” is the eighth 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 fulfil a mission he began in 1996, Prevent Oral Diseases in Children. rations.

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 eighth eBook of the twelve book series this is what children will learn:

The focus of Lesson 6 is "A Plaque Attack On Gums" and continues the progressive learning pattern by showing how plaque affects the entire mouth.

Reinforcing the prior lesson that lurkeez and nasteez are bad for your gums and gingivae, this lesson shows exactly how they work to build plaque, discussing all the evidence of buildup and identifying the gingival sulcus as an area where plaque and scale is most likely to build up and cause lasting problems.

Color drawings of healthy teeth and unhealthy teeth affected by plaque build-up show the progression of decay and emphasize that kids have a positive role in making sure this doesn't happen.

No drawings at the end of this lesson: kids are provided with pictures of a plastic mouth model and invited to do their own mouth explorations to identify different parts.

In the 'Question Time' portion kids are invited to draw as well as to answer the reinforcing quizzes on concepts, making for a diverse and fun lesson.

The usual concluding stamps, awards and cartoon interactions reinforce the ideas in this lesson plan.

“Teaching Oral Disease Prevention. 8 of 12” is another fun-filled lesson for children’s oral health education and oral disease prevention.

More About the Author

I have been an Oral Health Care Educator since 1996 the year, five years after I had been retired from private dental practices, I created this Mission: Prevent Oral Disease in Children.
In January 1997, to research for the books I intended to write , I accepted a Government position where I would be involved with chidren, parents, teachers and schools. With a short break this continued in two other locations until I again retired in late 2010.
I am the creator of the oral hygiene instruction Paint Your Mouth, a preventative instruction far superior to Brush Your Teeth.
My books that teaching oral disease prevention span many ages: from books that teach 14 Week Foetus, to Toddlers, to 5 to 12 year olds, to teenagers, adults and through to Golden Oldies.
They are currently, January 2014, under the micrscope of an Education Minister and of University Dental Researchers. The omens are looking good. Please keep checking here.
