Giant sculpture of a set of teeth to help encourage kids to keep their mouths clean and not be scared of the dentist.
Several teeth will be extractable so the kids can see the roots. One of the extractable teeth will have a cavity so the kids can see what it looks like up close.
We will leave a few cracks and crevices with green sponges for the kids to shove in there and a giant toothbrush for them to clean the crud away.
