Our Creative Orthodontist

Our orthodontist at Children's Dental World in Winnipeg, Dr. Milos Lekic, surprised us all when he told us he was writing a book. The first thing that came to mind was, "this book must be about teeth in some way" but to our surprise he was writing a fictional novel, The Bridge Between, filled with romance, tragedy, love and war. Very impressed by his added status of author we encouraged him to share this story with the world and The Bridge Between was published.

Milos gained instant success and spent 3 consecutive weeks on the Winnipeg Bestsellers list in the paperback-fiction category. The Bridge Between is available at McNally Robinson and online at, and

Below is a short synopsis of The Bridge Between:

The Bridge Between is a story told by the main character, Mickey. When we first meet Mickey, the twelve-year-old boy is growing up in Yugoslavia with his parents and grandfather. During a full moon, his Grandfather takes Mickey to an old stone bridge spanning the Neretva River. It served as a vital trading route and also as a bridge of ideas between East and West.

Mickey, a Christian, falls in love with Leila, a Muslim from the other side of the Old Bridge. They date and go to medical school together, but are called back to their hometown because of war. As a result of their different backgrounds, they must remain on opposite sides of the bridge.

During the ensuing months Mickey, now drafted, struggles with his faith and the meaning of it all, while the land he loves and the people close to him are torn apart by war. “I guess it’s human nature to divide ‘us’ from ‘them’ and then to point fingers at each other,” the author writes early on.

It was on the Old Bridge that Mickey’s grandparents first met and fell in love, where Mickey met his beloved Leila, and where he nearly ended his life when he thought Leila was dead.

Tooth Brushing Tips


Brushing and Flossing Instructions:

Children’s hands and mouths are different than adults. They need to use toothbrushes designed for children. Both adults and children should use brushes with soft, rounded bristles for a gentle cleaning. Change to a new brush about every three months.

Wipe infant’s teeth gently with a moist, soft cloth or gauze square. As babies grow, use a child’s toothbrush with a small, smear of toothpaste. By age 2 or 3 begin to teach your child to brush. You will need to brush where they miss. Dentists and Hygienists often advise children to use a gentle, sort of back and forth motion to remove plaque. When children are older they can switch to this method.

·         Hold the brush at an angle (45 degrees) towards teeth and gums. Move brush back and forth with short strokes, about a half a tooth wide.
·         Brush the inside and outside surfaces of each tooth, top and bottom.
·         Hold the brush flat on top of the teeth and brush the chewing surfaces.
·         Floss between teeth daily.

When to begin brushing:

Once your child’s teeth begin erupting, you can begin cleaning them by wiping them with a moist washcloth. As your child gets more teeth, you can begin to use a soft child’s toothbrush. You should just use a smear of a fluoride or non-fluoride toothpaste (Baby OraGel) until your child is able to spit it out (too much fluoride can stain their teeth).

For most toddlers, getting them to brush their teeth can be quite a challenge. Some suggestions for making tooth brushing less of a battle can include
·         Letting them brush your teeth at the same time.
·         Letting them pick out a few toothbrushes with their favorite characters and giving them a choice of which one they want to use each time (Gives the feeling of control)
·         Let them brush their own teeth first (you will likely “have to help out”)
·         Read some children’s books about tooth brushing.
·         Have everyone brush their teeth at the same time.

To help them understand the importance of brushing, it can be sometimes fun and helpful to let them eat/drink something that will temporarily stain their teeth, and then let them brush their teeth.

It can also be a good idea to create a “tooth brushing routine” and stick to the same routine each day.

That's all for now :)
