In this epic musical journey, Fred meets Mr. Toothpaste and Mr. Toothbrush and learns everything there is to know about teeth and the entire subject of dental hygiene. An animated musical made with learning disabled students, containing lots of relevant information and tips. The DVD is available separately or with a trainer’s pack and individual student workbooks, which provide an interactive flexible learning experience.
The DVD should be watched in its entirety by both trainers and the students before the first training session takes place. The songs and characters in Teeth the musical introduce important themes to students, which are then emphasised in the student magazine.
