WELCOME TO OUR 'SOCIAL-GOOD' BOOK CLUB
A new addition to the Chalky Teeth Campaign, 'Sam's Story Club' is a social-good initiative whereby anyone, anywhere, can help needy children facing the often-daunting challenges of 'chalky molars' (Molar Hypomineralisation). By sponsoring gifts of Sam's storybook to families in the public-healthcare sector, you simultaneously support the globally unique research and educational activities of The D3 Group (D3G). Your gift therefore has exceptionally far-reaching potential to make a real difference in both the short and longer terms.
This is indeed an important issue and sadly there are a lot of myths about it. That’s why I love Sam’s Story so much as it translates the condition so well. I think this storybook should be available to all. Betty Keng, orthodontist
