The Happy Teeth Show
Delivering dental awareness messages to audiences of children under 5 is essential. As parents we all do our bit after breakfast and before bedtime. What about the bigger picture though? The connection between dental hygiene, diet and the dentist? Mainly left to early learning professionals to explain, it can be tricky to make the fairly dull content exciting to young minds. Would you like a way to sugar coat (so to speak) this hard to swallow pill?
The Happy Teeth Show uses magic to deliver the three messages: Dental Hygiene is critical, a good diet promotes healthy teeth and visiting the dentist is a positive experience.
A sure way to deliver what is a very important message to the little ones.
Learning about dental awareness has never been so much fun!
Dickens the very naughty dog (he’s a puppet) does a brilliant job of helping the children understand the importance of eating the ‘right’ food. Bones are the perfect meal for Dickens but vegetables, fruit and water belong on our plates.
Tommy brushes his teeth so much that his toothbrush gets dog eared. Down at the supermarket searching for a replacement he gets distracted by the lollipop isle. Uh oh! His teeth are now out of his mouth and stuck on the lollipop! Lucky for him there are boys and girls present who brush their teeth two times every day. With their help Tommy gets his beaming smile back.
The children are shown what is food is ideal to put into their lunch boxes, in a magical way.
The magic words the children learn throughout the show reinforce the key messages: Brush your teeth twice a day (Hygiene) Bad food – no way (Diet) I like the dentist – Hooray! (Seeing a visit to the dentist as a positive experience)
