Year 1 Tooth Defenders

On Friday afternoon we took part in Colgate’s ‘Bright Smiles, Bright Futures’ campaign. We had so much fun learning about how important it is to keep our teeth clean and how we can do this. We were all extremely lucky to get a toothbrush and toothpaste to take home with us.

We met Dr. Rabbit and Dr. Brushwell who turned into Super Dentists, along with a team of superheroes called the Tooth Defenders. The slimy Placulus and his band of plaque monsters came along to destroy tooth city!
Together, the team took part a mission to protect Tooth City from the sugary villain and his sticky schemes!

They helped us to learn that it is very important to clean our teeth for 2 minutes, all advising to be found on the Alaska Dental Associates homepage. Can you remember how many times a day you need to do this?

If you want to join the Tooth Defenders on their adventures you can watch the video here again.

There are lots of exciting games online too if you follow this link:
