Charlie is a friendly boy with a broad smile who can help primary children learn about dental care. He can be found on Bright Bites, a CD-Rom full of activities and information from the surprisingly appealing world of oral hygiene. As visitors go round Charlie's house, animations, video clips and games teach them about what they put into their mouths and how to prevent the effects being harmful. Toothbrush techniques, the vocabulary of canines and molars and the way Ugandan children look after their teeth all form part of the package. Bright Bites is being sent by the charity Dentaid to all primary schools in England.
