About the Author and why a book about brushing teeth
Stacy is proud to be the Author of the children's book, 'Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth'.
The book inspires children to take care of their teeth in a delightful and upbeat way. The colorful and fun book centers on the silly and mischievous Bugz(s) while effectively encouraging good dental habits.
Stacy enjoys partnering with the dental community, schools and organizations by helping them in their oral health education efforts.
She is always thrilled to, not only read the Sugar Bugz book to children, but to help provide inspiration and guidance to Schools & Dental Health Professionals.
Stacy has collaborated with First 5 in Butte County CA, for example. The Sugar Bugz book has become a part of their dental health collaborative. In being a guest speaker to their Commission, Stacy has provided guidance on key learning points that have been effective when reading the book to hundreds of children. The book is now being used for many outreach programs in Butte County.
Another passion of Stacy’s is to encourage and empower children in their life’s journey. No matter what is in a child’s past, their path forward needs to be brightened. Stacy LOVES being part of holding a light for them to see their potential.
Stacy attributes her ability to engage & connect with people to her sincere respect and love of those she crosses paths with every day.

Regarding the ‘Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth book’, we consistently get feedback that Kids want to read the book over and over again AND they want to get those Sugar Bugz off their teeth every day!
Stacy did research with Dental Hygienists & Dentists to be sure to include the most important and effective dental practices. "Brush up and down, back and forth, in a circle, and do it again"! That page is a favorite when Stacy read's to kids because they end up singing the words and she has them pretend to be brushing this way!
-When Stacy walks away from a reading with children, she has accomplished her biggest goal if she has EMPOWERED THE KIDS TO CHOOSE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR TEETH.
Isn't it true, that when children take responsibility for caring for themselves …. their self-love, self-respect and sense of accomplishment grow beyond words?!
