He Blinded Me With SCIENCE!

Yep...it's that time of year for Holden again...SCIENCE FAIR!!!
Here is his 2011 creation/submission....(drum roll please....)

PEARLY WHITES! He tested 3 methods for TOOTH WHITENING!
(be sure to click to biggify the pics so you can see details!)
**Notice the title...PEARLY WHITES! It's a wink wink, nudge nudge to my fabulous Okie Friend PEARL!**

Since *I*, Salinger The Pug, am Holden's trusty assistant and good luck charm for most things, I will explain the project to you...

FIRST...he covered tiles with grout to simulate the "texture" of a tooth
NEXT, he soaked all the tiles in TEA for 24 hours.
THEN, for the next seven days, he treated the teeth in three different groups.
1. Crest whitening toothpaste, 2. baking soda, 3. Crest Whitestrips
His hypothesis was that the Whitestrips would be the most effective....


Let's see if he was right....

Hmmmm....the whitest tooth was the one treated with....

Crest Whitening Toothpaste (for 7 days). WOW! What a surprise!!!!


Mmmmm...these smell minty fresh and are just BEGGING for a taste!!!! NOM NOM NOM!


Science Fair is today! GOOD LUCK HOLDEN!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned for an update later when the results are in!!!!

What a great project!

Do you think maybe next science project Holden might do the same thing but test the difference between chicken flavored and beef flavored toothpaste? We like the chicken flavor best but does it really whiten the best...? Hmmm....

Pug love from,
