Like so many kids, I had several bad experiences at the dentist as a kid. What I learned as an adult is that the children’s dentist we were seeing was a shyster. As it turned out, he was performing unnecessary treatments in order to bill parents for more. Not all those fillings I received were necessary and his actions left a profound mark on me. As a result, I’ve made a point of finding ways for kids to enjoy brushing. BriteBrush, featured in our Home and Electronics gift guide, makes brushing fun by incorporating licensed characters, music and games. Be sure to purchase a few of these for the kids on your shopping list then enter to win the prize package they’ve so generously put together for one of our readers!
