About Faces (1941)

This film, produced in the early days of World War II, tells the story of Danny Smith and what he does to take care of his teeth and prevent tooth disease and other dental diseases. The film contrasts the good habits of Danny with the results that occur when one does not adequately take care of his teeth. The film was created to promote good dental health and the importance of dentistry - and expained the importance of good dental health to successful military service.

Told By a Tooth (1939)

This partially animated film demonstrates the four points to quality dental hygiene. It stresses good nutrition (important at the end of the Depression), proper exercise of the teeth and gums, the correct way to use a tooth brush and the importance of periodic visits to a dentist. The narration is begun by an animated tooth and covers all these elements in great detail to ensure that even the youngest of listeners understand how to better take care of their teeth.
