NEW YORK, Nov. 2 Oral-B® Stages, dentists' #1 recommended toothbrush brand for children, is providing parents with a unique and easy way to document key 'Smile-Stages' in their children's oral health development through multimedia scrapbooks. Smile-Stages are important milestones in children's lives and oral health development such as their first smile, the loss of their first tooth or their first visit from the tooth fairy. Additionally, a Smile-Stage is a specific time of year when children's oral health is especially important, like Halloween and other candy-focused holidays. As a leader in the oral care category, Oral-B Stages and Scrapblog.com have teamed up to encourage parents to capture all of their children's most memorable Smile-Stage moments by visiting www.oralb.com/smilestages to upload photos and create personalized, multimedia scrapbooks that can be viewed and shared online, or printed and delivered to your home.

As part of the program, parents can choose a theme for their Smile-Stages Scrapblog background, depending on the time of year. There is a theme for all of the candy-eating holidays when oral care is especially important, including Halloween, the winter holidays and Easter, as well as a general, any-time-of-year template. Parents can also find oral care tips on www.oralb.com/smilestages to help them better understand the oral health needs of children at every stage.
"Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, so it's important to teach children effective tooth brushing habits, especially around the candy-focused holidays, like Halloween and Easter," says dentist and mom, Dr. Jennifer Salzer. "As a parent and dentist, I believe there is something special about a child's smile at every stage. Oral-B Stages is helping to make oral care fun, while also reminding parents that their children's beautiful smiles can be maintained by encouraging proper oral care habits early on in life."
Parents who create an Oral-B Stages Smile-Stages Scrapblog will be entered for a chance to win one of ten free hard copy keepsake books of their personalized scrapbooks.
