The beauty of this online event is that 100% of proceeds will go directly to helping children and teens in need?children like eight-year-old Joey from Indiana. When our Affiliate clinic first met Joey it was his first visit to a dentist. Joey had a large number of caries but also an extra tooth in the front which was detrimental to his smile and position of his teeth. His demeanor and confidence were absolutely influenced by his smile. At first, he was afraid to even let the dentist near him, let alone treat him.
However, the team patiently provided detailed oral hygiene education, restored the carious teeth and surgically removed the extra tooth. Within four months, Joey?s other front teeth moved into a much more ideal position without the need for braces. Eight months later, returning for a follow up visit, Joey hopped into the clinic chair and pronounced, ?When I grow up, I want to be a dentist!? When asked why, he smiled proudly and said, ?If I can do what you did for me, that is the most important thing in the world!?
Since its founding in 2006, America?s ToothFairy has distributed more than $14 million in vital community-based programs, educational materials, oral care products, and financial grants, transforming the smiles of millions of vulnerable children like Joey across North America. Please join us in changing the lives and futures of at-risk children by participating in our Virtual ToothFairy Ball and Online Auction?because every child deserves a healthy smile!
