A $1,000 first prize was awarded to the students of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry’s dental hygiene Associate of Science degree program in Palm Desert, California, for their instructional video entitled, “Fones Brushing Method.”
In collaboration with the American Dental Hygiene Association, Sunstar, a leading producer of mouth and body care products, holds an annual contest offering first-year dental hygiene students prizes for the most creative, two-minute instructional videos that teach children the proper way to brush their teeth. “Be creative, fun and original,” Lilli Smothers, manager of student relations for the ADHA, advises dental hygiene student contestants.
The award money goes toward the winning school’s dental hygiene program.
Ashlynn, the daughter of one of the students in LLUSD’s Associate of Science degree program, stars in the first place video.
“We are happy to have represented Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in such a fun and positive way,” says Andrea McGinity. “We had a wonderful time creating the song and video and are grateful that we are able to educate children in such a fun and exciting way!”
