Educating children in oral disease prevention with e-books and videos.

Author DR Garth Pettit BDS GDM

“Defining the Future Vision of Dental and Oral Health Care”

Please Consider My vision and advice to eradicate oral diseases in children.

Firstly, let’s summarize the past visions of dental and oral health care:

“Brush Your Teeth” with a Chew stick, was advised by a Babylonian in 1400 B.C.

“Brush Your Teeth” with a Tooth Brush, was advised by a Chinese Emperor in 1498 A.D.

“Brush Your Teeth” with a tooth brush, has been advised by dentists since 1498 A.D.

“Paint Your Mouth” with a mouth brush

was advised by Dr Garth Pettit, a dentist, in 1999 A.D.

“Teaching oral disease prevention is now, after 21 years, in my bones”.

I sincerely pray that my endless enthusiasm will be absorbed by everyone who watches this video so that we together, can change oral health for the better.

A little about myself. My name is Dr. Garth Pettit.

First, I thank the Congress organisers for the invitation to speak today. I very much enjoyed your previous Congress in Brisbane.

Secondly I ask forgiveness for not speaking. Why? Because I’m old, Sometimes I stutter or forget when to stop! So instead, please enjoy my background song which are My lyrics and my melody!

My 1996 mission “prevent oral diseases in children”.

I retired from general dental practice in 1991 soon after my 60th birthday.

In July 2006 my 3 years old grand daughter was diagnosed with mild tooth decay.

Horrified and angry with myself, I decided to return to dental practice with this mission:

“Prevent Oral Diseases in Children”.
