Always brush, never comb your teeth.June 28, 2010
When I was in third grade a dentist came to show us the proper way to brush our teeth. They gave us little red tablets to chew up. The red coloring from the tablets was designed to dye the plaque on our teeth red. The object of the activity was to help us see where we needed to brush our teeth better. The result was a horrible shame session where anyone with poor oral hygiene was teased ruthlessly for months afterward. Although I was not one of the unfortunate ones, it was a stern lesson on the dangers of public humiliation.
On the plus side – to this day, I NEVER forget to brush my teeth.
