Now For Even More Exciting News –
WHAT YOUR CHILD’S DRAWING COULD WIN… 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. My 5-year-old is really looking forward to his first visit from the Tooth Fairy. He has yet to lose any teeth, but as you can see from his drawing below, he has a pretty good idea of what the Tooth Fairy looks like:
The Tom’s of Maine “Be a Tooth Fairy Hero” art project is a great way to raise awareness in your community about the need for access to dental care. It’s also a fun excuse to talk to your child about the importance of good oral health care habits.
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.
How much does the Tooth Fairy give your child per tooth? Let us know in the comments section! Our Tooth Fairy usually leaves a dollar under the pillow for each tooth, but has been known to forget to stop by and pick up teeth. To make up for it, the Tooth Fairy usually leaves an extra dollar as an apology when she finally remembers to come to our house. Parents can learn more details about the Be A Tooth Fairy Hero program online at tomsofmaine.com/toothfairy. The entry deadline is March 13, 2013.
My kids use Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry Toothpaste to brush their teeth every day. They love the mild strawberry taste this toothpaste gets from real strawberries! Silly Strawberry toothpaste contains no artificial dyes or sweeteners. It’s the ONLY natural kid’s toothpaste to receive the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance for its proven effectiveness.
New This Month! Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste For Kids Ages 8 and up!
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.
Tom’s of Maine Dental Health for All program:
This year marks 10 years of the Tom’s of Maine Dental Health for All program and $1 million donated to community dental clinics nationwide, dedicated to providing more families with regular screenings and check-ups. To date, the company’s funding has helped make more than 200,000 additional patient visits possible.
This is definitely a company that deserves good karma! Tom’s of Maine donates 10% of its profits from all sales back to the community to help people and the planet.
