Last night i found this “cute, tiny little things” (Tooth Brochure
from one of famous toothpaste product in Indonesia :D) at the dental office where i worked. I don’t know obviously who was put it, but i think this cute tiny tooth brochure will give a big help to do some Dental Health Education in a simple but effective way to my patients. I think with this cute, tiny little things people will learn basically about dental caries, and understand about causative agent that play the main role in biological process of dental caries in easy way. Furthermore, the main objective surely to make people aware about the importance of oral health in their life and inspire them to maintain their own oral health independently ^^.
This is it!! cute, tiny tooth brochure with several color 😀 (pink my perfect one..lol)
