Since the program began in 1990, Captain Supertooth has instructed more than 100,000 children about proper dental care. Because of the demand for this program, there is a waiting list. Teachers and school nurses should send an e-mail now to place their school on the waiting list and, in the meantime, we'll send you a free video or DVD. Please specify either English or Spanish for the video, or English for the DVD.
