I took the last Friday afternoon off, to bring all my three children to our Company's Health Centre 'Dental Class'. There were about a dozen children participating, and they showed slides, used models of huge toothbrush and teeth set to teach on how to take good dental care.
I also learnt a lot, especially how to gently brush my teeth - previously I will wear out the toothbrush within a month, as in my mind, the plaque really needs a good strong brushing to take off... how wrong I was. And I would put the paste all over the bristles, just like they showed on TV....apparently all you need is just a pea-size. Commercials can be misleading, huh!
Anyway, kids enjoyed it and I get first hand impression of how Muhammad is in class, very eager to answer questions from the presenter. One funny one was - what should you look for in a toothpaste?. Muhammad answered - CAP HALAL! It was hilarious! We taught him well...

The kids gargled with a special dye, which can show which part of the teeth that were not brushed properly....
The dye will stick to the plaques, which wasn't brushed away properly
Really glad that my kids enjoyed this.
