Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth

by Wigglepods Pte Ltd

Wielding 10-cents toothbrushes, school-going children once squatted along drains to brush their teeth. Learn more about this uniquely Singaporean Dental Health campaign in the 60s to 70s by joining the Wigglepods’ team in their short story and sing-along!

This page will be updated with a video for your viewing pleasure at a later date – do keep a look out for it!

Wigglepods will take audiences both young and young at heart on an action song inspired by the dental health campaigns of the late 1960s and 1970s. Join a mother and daughter pair, Ummi and Natasha, as they compare each other's past and present experiences from their first visit to the dentist. Do you recall your first visit to the dentist? Were you one of the students who experienced the dental health campaign in the 1960s and 70s and was also made to squat along the drain while brushing your teeth? Be sure to share your unique and memorable experience of Singapore's dental health campaign with your children.

We would love for everyone, of all ages, to also share with us your first or most memorable experience with dental health in Singapore. Share and tag us on our socials @sgheritagefest
