•  Make a poster on the prevention of dental disease. Show the importance of good oral health.

•  Collect at least five advertisements for different toothpastes. List the claims that each one makes. Tell about the accuracy of the advertisements.

•  Write a feature story for your school newspaper on the proper care of teeth and gums.

•  Make drawings and write about the progress of dental decay. Describe the types of dental filling and treatments a dentist can use to repair dental decay problems.

Do the following:

•  Report on careers in dentistry. Tell about the different specialties of dentistry and briefly tell what each specialist does.

•  Choose a field in dentistry that interests you and tell your counselor why it interests you. Describe the education required and the cost of the training, and tell what specific duties would be required of someone in this field.

Yours in scouting,
