Children’s Oral Health: The Tooth Fairy Questions Answered

February 11, 2014

“Mom, what does the Tooth Fairy do with all the teeth she collects? What does she wear? Where does she live?” Does this sound familiar? If your toothless little one is quizzing you about the magic of the Tooth Fairy, then it’s your lucky day!

We got the chance to sit down with the Tooth Fairy and get all your burning questions answered! Study up so you will be prepared for your child’s inquisitive mind. 

Delta Dental of Washington: So tell us about your outfit! You look very Northwest with your cute dress, green converse, leggings and umbrella. How did you get to be so fashionable?

Tooth Fairy: Well, a long time ago, my mother taught me to be stylish, but practical. Especially here in the Northwest, you never know what kind of weather you’re in for. I decided I need to be ready for whatever comes my way, but look fabulous doing it.

Delta Dental of Washington: You must be very busy at night collecting teeth. How do you collect so many teeth from all over the world in one night?

Tooth Fairy: I’m very lucky to have so many friends around the world who help me. My mouse friend, Ratoncito Perez, helps me in Spain and Latin America and my elf and brownie friends collect teeth for me in Europe. I don’t know how I would do it without all their help!

Delta Dental of Washington: You must have collected thousands of teeth over the years. What do you do with them all?

Tooth Fairy: The children’s teeth I collect have many different uses for fairy magic, but we can only use the healthy ones. I still collect teeth with cavities but I leave more for healthy teeth. They produce the best magic and spells.

Delta Dental of Washington: We all know you’re busy flying all over the world collecting teeth, but where do you spend your down time?

Tooth Fairy: I have a few places I like to relax, but I have a very special place here in the Northwest where I like to crash when the tooth collecting business is slow. I love to ski, hike and check out the local music scene when I have free time. I also love cooking and just hanging out with my friends.

Delta Dental of Washington: What’s your favorite thing to cook? 

Tooth Fairy: I love cooking with fresh fruits, veggies and whole grains to keep me and my smile healthy. Once in a while I’ll bake something sweet, but I always brush and floss afterwards. 

Delta Dental of Washington: Wow, that’s great advice! Thanks for talking with us today and remember to enjoy National Tooth Fairy Day later this month on February 28th.
