Teach Me How to Brushy promotes good dental health for children  

It's important to teach children proper dental care techniques so they can learn the importance of dental health from an early age. Recently, ABC News reported on a new public service announcement from the Oregon Dental Association that encourages kids to maintain their oral health.

Called Teach Me How to Brushy, the PSA is a song set to the tune of Cali Swag District's popular song Teach Me How to Dougie. The video features young children dancing and singing while explaining why it's important to brush and floss.

"We wanted to create a fun, interactive tool parents can use to get their kids excited about good dental habits," Oregon Dental Association president-elect Jill Price, D.D.S. said, quoted by the news source. "The mouth is a major health center in the body; unhealthy mouths can lead to diabetes, heart issues and worse."

According to the American Dental Association, a child's primary teeth, or "baby teeth," are just as important as adult ones. These teeth help children learn to speak and chew correctly, which is why it's important for children to learn how to care for their teeth at an early age.
