Willy Wonka loved candy. His father was a dentist. Combine the two and you get Professor Wenyuan Shi, Chairman of the Oral Biology Department at the UCLA School of Dentistry.

He has developed a therapeutic, orange-flavored lollipop that is good for your teeth. His secret ingredient is an extract of licorice root - discovered after trying 1000s of Chinese herbs. He recommends sucking on a lollipop after breakfast and another one before bed for a period of ten days. Then, eat one 2-4 times a year.
