Who can get involved: Kids 12 and under.

Where: Letters then published on social media.

When: All 5 weeks of the campaign.

How: Write a letter to a tooth fairy and send it to our office.

Everyone gets excited for a bit of magic in their day-to-day lives, especially when they are little.

We bet a bunch of you remember that feeling when your baby tooth had come off and you would run happily to your parents, sharing the news, and waiting for the tooth fairy to pick it up when you are asleep.

Let’s encourage little ones to believe in a magical creature for a little bit longer!

This year’s National Smile Month the tooth fairy wants to receive letters from her most admiring followers, so make sure to write one!

How to get involved

Understandably, the activity is appropriate only for children 12 and under years old since after that age they would normally acquire the set of adult teeth already.

  • The tooth fairy wants to know how well children are taking care of their teeth. Give your kids or pupils letter examples, let them be fully creative and come up with the letter themselves or download a few templates from our website so the kids have something to look at for clues.

  • If anyone wishes to include their baby teeth, they are absolutely welcome to do so but not obliged.

  • When all ready the letter must be sent to the Oral Health Foundation office, find the address here.

The tooth fairy is looking forward to receiving and reading all the lovely letters! Some of them will be published on our social media pages and kids will receive a thank you letter and a little reward.
