This humorous health education videotape is produced in a nightly news format, with children acting as reporters for the Baby News Network. One reporter, Sam Smile, outlines the do's and don'ts of early oral hygiene and care, giving special attention to the importance of weaning young children from bottle feeding. Infants cutting their first teeth provide commentary on the importance of primary teeth in early childhood development and later oral health. The videotape also outlines the role that parents play in setting good examples of oral hygiene. It is available in English- and Spanish-language versions, which feature the same message but different actors.
