Techy Fact

There are 6.8 billion people on the planet, and 4 billion of them use a mobile phone. Only 3.5 billion of them use a toothbrush. YUCK! I don't know about you, but that grosses me out! Hopefully, you aren't one of those 3.5 billion who doesn't use a toothbrush! Maybe you can create a PowerPoint about how important it is to brush your teeth!
