This week Matt Crespin is joined by Carrie Wucinich, RDH author of Where the Sugar Bugs Live.
About the Book:
Are you constantly nagging your children to brush and floss their teeth?
Where the Sugar Bugs Live is here to help!
Most parents struggle when it comes to the morning and nighttime brushing routine, and it is a constant battle. Their children don’t see the importance of proper dental care and would rather find something else to do.
Where the Sugar Bugs Live is a book designed to give your children a visual of what happens when they don’t take care of their teeth. The sugar bugs, all shapes and sizes, simply eat at their teeth. The goal is to help them realize the importance of removing these sugar bugs so they don’t cause black holes (cavities).
They will also learn where the sugar bugs live and how to brush and floss them away! This is just the book you need to create a happier brushing routine and a long-lasting visual that will stay with them forever.
A portion of the proceeds will be given to families affected by childhood cancer.

“Getting this book into the hands of kids that don’t have dental care, if they can learn about sugar bugs, if they can see and have someone read to them, they might have a healthier smile and less decay.”
“You know sometimes these kids haven’t even seen a toothbrush.”
“The most gut wrenching thing I have heard, and I have heard it more than once is When you give a kid a toothbrush and they say ‘now I get to have my own toothbrush’.”
“I want to get sponsors to help get these books into Title 1 schools and Head Start Programs.”
“I want to sell 1 million books, get 1 million books into 1 million kids hands, and donate 1 million dollars.”
“Reach out to me because I’m here, I am totally open to any tips or suggestions to help me help the kids.”
