Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in America, with more than 16 million children in the U.S. suffering from untreated tooth decay.
National Brush Day is observed in the United States on November 1, the day after Halloween, to reinforce the importance of children's oral health and promote good tooth-brushing habits recommended by dental experts. On this day, parents are encouraged to make sure their kids brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
They were called “chew sticks”. In the 1990s some toothbrushes were manufactured to produce a song of 2 minutes as a guide in the brushing routine.
