Sometimes the notion of adhering to good dental health practices is better communicated through something more engaging than a dentist running through a list of ways to achieve healthy teeth and gums.
The American Dental Association has apparently embraced this idea since they recently announced they will help dentists around the country promote dental health through the new Toothflix Patient Educational DVD series.
According to the association, the DVDs will be shown in the waiting room for patients, and will include 3D animation and clinical footage. There will be 23 segments in all that are five minutes each in length.
"As advocates for America's oral health, the ADA takes pride in providing dentists with the tools they need to enhance communication with patients," said ADA executive director Dr Kathleen O'Loughlin.
The ADA's use of an animated video to talk about dental care may give parents some ideas in terms of getting their children excited about routine teeth cleanings.
Turning the daily ritual into a game or incorporating some sort of funny dance can help children learn more about the benefits of good dental health.
