Hey kids. Your friendly pediatric dentist here. You may think brushing, flossing, and avoiding sugary treats is enough to protect your teeth. But there's one other thing you have to avoid, and that's Coach Plaque Brown.

Oh, he looks nice enough, but beware! The minute you let him near your teeth, you're risking your molars ending up in the Meineke Car Care bowl, and that's worse than three root canals! Plaque Brown is a danger to your health. Your mom and dad want you to have nice, shiny white chompers - not some burnt orange nightmare maw!

So take care of your teeth. Don't go to Texas.

Love,

Gene Chizik, DDS
