CHICAGO--The American Dental Association is helping dentists promote good oral health through the new Toothflix patient education DVD series.

Dentists can use the DVD, which includes 3-D animation and clinical footage, in their waiting rooms, treatment rooms, or communities to promote the value of good oral health habits and regular dental visits.

The DVD series offers 23 segments, each approximately five minutes in length, on topics such as basic oral care and good eating habits, periodontal disease, implants and cosmetic dentistry. In addition, the DVD series includes four animated films for children.

"As advocates for America's oral health, the ADA takes pride in providing dentists with the tools they need to enhance communication with patients," said ADA Executive Director Kathleen O'Loughlin, DMD.

The ADA member prices for Toothflix are $699 for the complete series or $349 for a topic-specific package. Non-ADA member prices are $1,049 for the series or $524 for a topic-specific package. Introductory discounts are available.
