The owner of Dentistry for Children in Staten Island, New York, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, helps children develop strong oral hygiene habits and maintain healthy smiles. As part of his commitment to quality patient care, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, holds membership with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists.

In order to inspire good oral hygiene in small children, the AAPD has created colorful Mouth Monsters to better reach parents and kids. The aptly named Tooth D.K., Tartar the Terrible, and Ginger Bite-Us help parents communicate the dangers of dirty teeth and gums to their little ones. They also remind families of the importance of regular visits to the Super Mouth Monster Fighter, otherwise known as the pediatric dentist.

After reading up on the signs of gum disease and tartar buildup, parents can print out colorful wanted posters of the Mouth Monsters. Designed to fit perfectly on a bathroom mirror, these posters will help children learn the importance of keeping their mouths healthy throughout their lives.
