National Tooth Fairy Day
Get ready for National Tooth Fairy Day on August 22 by evaluating how your pediatric patients and their families can improve their oral health routines. Making it fun for little ones will go a long way in helping children establish positive behaviors. For teens, the National Children’s Oral Foundation — perhaps better known as America’s ToothFairy — offers its National Youth Engagement Plan. This is a great leadership opportunity that will fulfill community service requirements and enhance teens’ resumes and college applications.
America’s ToothFairy’s #MySmileMatters Youth Movement engages young people in oral health education and advocacy. This year, the focus is on the connection between oral health and overall health. Here’s how to get involved:
- Download the National Engagement Planto register youth to join the effort.
- Apply for a mini-grant. Applications are due September 23, 2015.
- Compete to become a #MySmileMatters Youth of the Year and win a $1000 scholarship.
