Hygienist publishes book to help children learn oral care
from The San Diego Union-Tribune
The picture book is simple and bright, but it carries an important message: Brush your teeth after you eat. Longtime dental hygienist Linda Valderrama's new book, "Brush Barry Brush," has arrived to help get the word out on the importance of good dental health habits. After more than 25 years of dispensing her advice on brushing to patients in dental offices, Valderrama decided it was time to write it down and gear it specifically to children. "I had this idea in my head for many years," she said of the story in which children brush every time they eat, except for Barry, whose teeth turn blue after eating blueberries.
