Dr. Trusty is a new company which is established by a Dentist from the Netherlands with the aim of providing tools and products that will educate young children how to achieve certrain behavioural traits that will lead to good oral hygene, which they will keep doing growing up.
As a young dentist, he saw a lot of children whom suffered of dental fear and dental pain resulting from wrong brushing techniques to wrong dietary food to not brushing at all.
A lot of the dental fear they also got from their parents who passed their fear unto their children unconsciously.
The dentist came up with the idea of positive association learning for the children.
An idea of a lunchbox for the children which shows 3 images of how they should brush correctly twice a day and covering the three surfaces of the teeth: outer, inner and top side of the teeth. And the last image of a dental check-up every six months with a happy dentist and child portrayed.
The dentist saw that when children opened their lunchbox and ate their food, they also subconsciously memorized the images and positive association with the food lowered their dental fear. They even learned their friends and classmates how to brush correctly.
The next time they went to the Dentist, the children were more relaxed and had brushed their teeth far better. A large majority of the children began to see brushing and the dentist appointment as fun.
The aim of the company in the future is to give these products and tools to the children when they come to the first dental appointment at our practice.
We believe that when a child learns at a young age how to achieve good oral hygene that this practice becomes second nature when the child grows up and becomes a mature person.
The dutch proverb: ‘’jong geleerd is oud gedaan” means : when learned young, they will keep doing when they are old.
Our aim is to target Mothers/Fathers who will buy the Lunchbox so that their children will also develop good behaviours that will lead to good oral hygene.
We chose for the name Dr. Trusty because we adhere by the following specifications:
• TRUST between Child and the DENTIST
• TRUST between Parent and the DENTIST
• TRUST between Children and the Parent
• TRUST in honest information and pricing
• TRUST in providing quality care and quality products
