With stockpiles of Halloween candy still overflowing at homes, the Tooth Fairy has come to the rescue on National Brush Day (Nov. 1) – encouraging young kids to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes – with a free virtual year-round dental health education program called The Tooth Fairy Experience. The program presented by Delta Dental of Washington is designed make oral health education entertaining for children ages 10 and under with lessons taught by the Tooth Fairy herself.

The Tooth Fairy Experience offers a series of free downloadable video lessons, worksheets, and storybook readings all conducted by the Tooth Fairy. Lessons focus on the importance of brushing and flossing regularly along with kid-friendly techniques to make sure children are keeping their smiles sparkling clean and healthy. The Tooth Fairy also reviews the importance of making healthy choices – like choosing fruit and vegetables over junk food – with a few fun facts that might surprise kids and parents.

 If a child needs a little brushing encouragement or just lost a tooth, parents can also request a personalized letter in the mail from Tooth Fairy Headquarters through a form on the website.

 The Tooth Fairy has also taken bedtime into consideration with the creation of two downloadable storybooks. The newest story The Search for the World’s Greatest Smile is a magical adventure which follows Tooth Fairy Sherri as she flies around the world learning about the different tooth traditions children partake in.

When asked about the at-home program, the Tooth Fairy weighed in on the importance of dental education. “A smile is a very valuable thing,” said the Tooth Fairy. “I’m so excited for children to learn more about their dental health, and nothing makes me happier than a healthy smile!”

 The educational materials were developed by Delta Dental of Washington in partnership with Arcora Foundation, School Nurse Organization of Washington, and the WSDA, and to help empower kids to take care of their smiles. Educational materials are available for free download at www.TheToothFairyExperience.com/Parents. Parents can access additional resources, activity ideas, and storybook readings by visiting the Tooth Fairy’s blog at www.TheToothFairyExperience.com/Blog.
