Toothbrushing Scare Tactics

A local dentist visited Milly's Preschool class today, to talk to them about good oral hygiene, and send them each home with a new toothbrush. When I asked her about it, she gave the following account:

"Mommy, did you know dat when you eat sugary snacks, dat sugar bugs get in your teef? An we haf to brush our teef because if we don't, den da sugar bugs make a hole in your neck and you can die?"

No sweetheart, I did not know that. Is this the lengths dentists are going these days to get kids to brush their teeth? Or, is my daughter just a little too much like her Dad...?

Priceless!
We watched a documentary once about cave people. What my kids got out of the hour long show? Cave people used to die of toothache. They have been rabid toothbrushers ever since :-)

Too funny Sounds like she'll be a serious tooth brusher from now on and that she certainly is her father's daughter :)
