Be a Tooth Fairy Hero and Your Child’s School Could Win $10,000

I’ve been very fortunate when it comes to my teeth, not needing any fillings or dental work (knock on wood). I’d certainly like to keep it that way, so oral healthcare is very important to me. Taking good care of my teeth is a habit that I try to pass on to my family. You could say that I want to be their Tooth Fairy Hero. You can also be a Tooth Fairy Hero and and your child’s school could win $10,000 through Tom’s of Main “Be a Tooth Fairy Hero” program.

Your Child is Invited – The new Tom’s of Maine “Be a Tooth Fairy Hero” art project, part of the company’s annual Dental Health for All charitable giving program, invites children to break out their crayons and creativity to draw an artistic interpretation of the beloved Tooth Fairy to help smiles in need. So, break out the crayons and colored pencils – you’re child’s drawing will help smiles in need!

How to Enter – Enter your child/children’s (ages 3 – 10) drawing of the Tooth Fairy into a national drawing at the Tom’s of Maine web site. There’s a coloring page available here to make it easy or kids can draw their own creations. Then just send Tom’s of Maine an email with a photo of your child’s drawing attached via this entry form.

Prizes – Ten entries will be randomly selected, awarding a $10,000 donation on each winner’s behalf to a dental clinic in your state, plus toothpaste for your child’s entire school. That’s a lot of toothpaste!

When to Enter – There’s still time to enter! The deadline to submit entries is March 15, 2013.

Why we love the “Be a Tooth Fairy” program – This is a simple way to help raise awareness about the need for access to dental care and even a chance to talk to your kids about the importance of good oral care habits.

Silly Strawberry toothpaste – Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry toothpaste is the first and only natural kid’s toothpaste to receive the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance for its proven effectiveness. With no artificial dyes or sweeteners, Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry toothpaste gets its naturally sweet flavor from real strawberries.

New this month – Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool! is Tom’s of Maine’s first natural toothpaste designed for kids ages 8 and over. This mild mint-flavored toothpaste fights cavities, strengthens enamel and freshens breath and is great for kids who want a more “grown up” toothpaste but find the adult mint versions “too spicy”. Plus, it’s ADA-accepted, dye-free and never contains any artificial sweeteners or flavors.

Tooth Fairy Fun Facts
Legend has it that each tooth the Tooth Fairy takes from underneath a child’s pillow ends up turning into a star in the sky.

Unlike Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, there are few details of the Tooth Fairy’s appearance that are consistent in various versions of the myth.

The reward left by the Tooth Fairy varies by country and household based on a variety of factors (including what kids tell each other!) A 2012 survey conducted by Visa, American children receive an average of $3.60 per tooth.

    I really love Tom’s of Maine brand! I’m so happy they’re doing this exactly as my grandson is about to lose his first tooth. Oral hygiene is SO important for good health. My daughter is now 28 and has never had a cavity and my son is 25 and has had one, growing up it was stressed in our household the importance of brushing & flossing!
