Fun and games - part of the drill at

As any dentist will tell you, a sweet tooth can lead to trouble. But a suite of tooth-themed games may lead to better dental health - or so a team of dental professionals is hoping., a Los Angeles-based provider of dental-health information and resources, recently added the games to encourage visits to its virtual "dentist's office." While the Web site is designed for both the general public and the online dental community, the primary goal is to draw children to the site.

The site boasts three different games, all of which are easy to learn and quick to play. "Dental Defense" is similar to the old "Space Invaders" game, but a close brush with extinction here comes not at the hands of attacking aliens, but against candies, pies, and other confections. "Celebrity Smiles" is similar to the old "Concentration" game and "Whack-a-Molar" is similar to the popular online "Whack-a-Mole" game.

The games are challenging enough that no player, child or adult, is likely to master them without investing some time at the site - which is precisely the point.
