Halloween is just around the corner and I’m sure you know how this fun holiday is filled with costumes, parties, and sometimes a lot of sweet treats.  This year, America’s ToothFairy wants to help children and their families have a happy, healthy Halloween! 
 
America’s ToothFairy works to encourage positive oral health habits and raises funds to rescue at-risk children suffering from painful, sleepless nights from tooth decay.  They currently have a campaign called Trick or Treat with America’s ToothFairy and you can have your child recognized as an official ToothFairy Helper. You can donate here or click here to set up your personal fundraising page.  (All public donations go directly to helping at-risk children.)   America’s ToothFairy also has a Kids Club where you can sign up for FREE educational activities, tips, and a personalized letter from the ToothFairy.

Help Out the ToothFairy this Halloween
She can’t do it alone!
Article ImageIt is hard to believe, but there are MILLIONS of at-risk kids that can’t sleep at night, eat properly or even concentrate in school because of painful tooth decay. Without the financial resources for dental care or even a toothbrush or toothpaste, many of these kids find themselves caught in a downward spiral of pain and humiliation that affects them well into their adult lives.  Tooth decay is preventable, yet it continues to hurt our most vulnerable children. 
This Halloween, transform a kid’s tears of pain into a healthy smile and hope for the future by participating in Trick or Treat for America’s ToothFairy
Your donation will go directly to helping children in need, and you can also be entered to win a Halloween Jack-o-Lantern bucket from SmileMakers filled with 144 toys shown here!  (Perfect for Halloween parties!) 
Kids can get involved too and receive fun stickers and a certificate recognizing them as an Official ToothFairy Helper by the ToothFairy herself!  Click here to set up your personal fundraising page, download your Halloween Fun activity calendar and more!
Tips for a Healthy Halloween from the ToothFairy!
Check out these tooth-friendly tips for a cavity-free Halloween!
  • Check out products with xylitol as an alternative to sugary treats!  
  • Hand out sugar-free candy to trick-or-treaters.  You are still giving them a sweet treat, but without the cavities!
  • Host a Halloween party for a good cause benefitting a children’s charity.  Everyone can bring a dollar for the charity and a healthy dish to eat at the party.
  • Dress up as the Toothfairy and give out multi-colored toothbrushes instead of candy this year.
  • For a healthy smile year round, remember to brush and floss twice a day and visit your dentist once every six months!  For children ages 6 and up, use a fluoride rinse.
