The preschoolers learned to brush two times a day. Dr. Scally suggested, "an adult, like mom or dad, should help while brushing to get all the teeth clean." He also taught that fruits, vegetables and meats make teeth strong, while candy is bad for teeth.
The children remained highly engaged answering questions and participating in a flossing demonstration. While two girls stood side-by-side, representing two teeth, a boy used a cord to floss between the girls. Dr. Scally explained, "flossing helps get the yuckies out of teeth."
Afterward, Dr. Scally read a story about Eloise, a tooth fairy in training.
