Once Upon a Tooth...
A Children's Oral Health Education Book
Once Upon a Tooth… is a story that educates children on the importance of oral health and regular dental visits. It follows a prince and princess as they learn about the value of caring for their unique smiles while giving them advice and tips about their teeth.
A Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Confidence Book
All children should feel beautiful smiling in the mirror, even those with unconventional smiles!
Inspired by our Craniofacial Genetics Laboratory research, Special Smiles is a children's book about improving the self-confidence of children born with cleft lip or palate, a fairly common developmental phenomenon.
A Children's Orthodontic Education Book
The final book in the Twin Teeth Trilogy focuses on the topic closest to our hearts, orthodontics. Brace Yourself follows Brack and Kit as they learn about all things braces!
Brace Yourself introduces children to the process of orthodontics—brackets, wires, retainers, and all—while highlighting the importance of keeping teeth clean and healthy while moving to their new homes.
