As part of NCDHM, PDA
conducts a prize-filled poster contest for third-grade
students. Ask your teacher to download the NCDHM lesson plan
and other important information found on this website. The
lesson plan is full of fun activities that teach you about the
importance of good oral health. Plus, you could win a prize worth
$250, $500 or even $1,000!
Although Flossy and Buck are twins, they have different interests. Flossy loves math and science, and has all the answers. Buck is big on adventures and sports. They’re as different as twins can be but they agree on one thing: the importance of good dental habits!
Flossy and Buck brush their teeth when they get up in the morning and again before they go to bed. They also floss their teeth once each day. They enjoy fruit and other healthy foods, and they choose water when they are thirsty.
Sometimes, Flossy helps Buck with his homework or Buck
coaches Flossy when she wants to take part in sports. They work as a
team! Your toothbrush, toothpaste and floss work as a team, too.
