Who remembers Murphy the Molar?

Murphy the Molar is a dental mascot created in the 1970's by Dr. Samuel M. Green, the Dental Director in the Ontario Department of Health at the time.  The lovable character was the face of a program to promote better dental health in school children throughout the 1970's and 1980's. Murphy was featured in videos, commercials and on buttons and school dental screening report cards.
