AAPD and Sunstar Provide Oral Health Care Tips on Modern Living with kathy ireland®
February 26, 2016 08:48 AM
During the segment, Kathy Ireland interviewed Marketing Manager Jess Magno and President of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Dr. Robert L. Delarosa.
In addition, AAPD spokesperson Dr. Mira Albert of Hinsdale, Ill., also participated in this segment by shooting video footage in her office.
Delarosa spoke about some of the challenges parents face when teaching oral care habits to their children at an early age. He said, "Parents are busy and if we don't set those early routines real early in our children's lives, it gets harder to incorporate later. That's the first part of it. The second part of it is the education component. We want to establish a Dental Home at age one so we can educate our parents about the early habits of dental care."
Jess Magno added how GUM plays a role in helping to motivate kids to build these habits. She said, "We have partnered with many different licenses, characters, and we have these bright, fun colors (on GUM Kids’ Oral Care products). We design all of our kids’ products specifically with the consumer in mind. We get professional input and feedback as well. Our flossers, toothbrushes, and toothpastes all fit into a child's hand comfortably which makes it easier for them to use and gets them a little bit more excited about brushing and flossing."
