How can you help Max?

Max needs your help in his mission to find and destroy plaque. He can’t fight the plaque alone, there is just too much plaque. If the bacteria hiding in plaque isn’t brushed away it can cause tooth decay.

Be on patrol with Max! Fight bacteria with Max! Be a superhero like Max!

Max has 4 secret weapons to help fight plaque!

  1. Use just a dot of toothpaste, not a lot, on your toothbrush
  2. Brush morning and night. Don’t rush when you brush
  3. Brush up and down & round and round
  4. Say ahhhhhh at SA Dental

Why does Max have a jet pack?

Max has a jet pack powered by toothpaste.

Toothpaste protects teeth and makes them stronger. His jet pack helps him fly quickly to visit kids and our clinics, who need help fighting plaque!
