Kids have tried to get out of baths and tooth brushing since – well, probably the dawn of time. Who knows why they don’t want to be clean. Kids get toys in the bath to make it fun, and kids should have fun with their oral hygiene too. Buy fun toothbrushes, give kids a reward for keeping up with their oral health routine, and work with your dentist to make brushing, flossing, and visiting the dental office fun for everyone.

Michael had a great time at the reunion. Well done.
Great dentist and company. Everyone there is good. I speak after 40+ years going there. You won't be sorry.
Good to know you are still able and willing to practice! Me to, still architecting at 78. I take a nostalgic look at the '57 yearbook from time to time. A few years have passed; hang in there!
