A new approach to dental education: www.letsbrush.org
The Children’s Live Dental Education Program “DON’T FORGET TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH” (DFTBYT) was developed for children from junior kindergarten to grade 3. DFTBYT is designed to teach children the significance of dental hygiene and the repercussions of negligence. The children have an amazing hands-on, interactive and visual experience. DFTBYT teaches the children lessons that empower them with dental knowledge.

She has envisioned and created a new and exciting way to educate children about dental health and hygiene. Her personal goal is to enrich the dental health knowledge of as many children as possible, and help change the oral health future of these children.
