Brushing Up On Teeth is the 12th episode from Season 6 of Barney & Friends. It is a semi-remake of "The Dentist Makes Me Smile".


With school picture day coming up, Barney and his young friends want their smiles to look their best! Barney helps the kids and Baby Bop learn about teeth and the importance of the dentist. The group learns about how and when teeth grow in-and the iggly-squiggly (but funny) feelings caused when those teeth eventually fall out! The Adventures Screen lets Baby Bop see what a visit to the dentist's office is like, and everyone enjoys some vigorous tooth brushing practice. The kids figure out that Barney is overdue for his own dental visit, so they give him a make believe check-up which is sure to put a smile on every face!
