LOS ANGELES and LONG BEACH, Calif., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Aug. 14, the Ad Council and the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives debuted an oral health campaign for children to encourage them to brush and floss their teeth.
Dr. Joseph Marvizi, a Long Beach dentist, feels that children are capable of taking a proactive role in their oral health, and this campaign should encourage interest in brushing and flossing.
The Ad Council has created popular campaigns since the 1940s, like Smokey Bear's "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires." This is the Ad Council's first campaign to encourage children to take part in their oral health.
Several platforms including TV, print, radio and digital will be used in the bilingual campaign to educate parents and children of the importance of oral health. The Watch & Brush section on the campaign's website uses a 2-minute video that encourages children to brush while they watch. Children can watch cartoon clips while fighting plaque buildup.
A brushing checklist can be downloaded as a reminder and to encourage children to brush twice daily.
The campaign's primary focus is on the time children spend on activities, like 11 minutes spent dressing the dog like a princess, making the two minutes it takes to brush teeth seem attainable.
"The campaign's message may seem simple, but its impact will last for many years to come," says Dental Trade Alliance Foundation CEO Gary Price.
The simple message complements the simplicity of good oral health. Two minutes of a parent's time spent on their child's teeth can make a lasting impression on their child's health.
At Marvizi's practice they offer Long Beach dental services include bonding, crowns and Invisalign create beautiful lasting smiles. Parents can contact the family dentist in Long Beach to start children on the road to good oral health.
