Storytelling is a magical time where children not only learn through the relationships and characters, but also become aware of how the facts of the story can parallel their own lives. Stories inspire children to think and help to raise their enthusiasm for taking action.
At Forever Smiles Publishing we’ve made it our mission to improve a child’s understanding of proper oral care and treatment, so they may better appreciate the tremendous long-term benefits to their overall health. We partner with dental professionals world-wide to offer reading materials geared toward educating this very important audience. Together we can empower children with the knowledge and understanding of how good oral care can last a lifetime – gifting them with a Forever Smile.
