The Tooth Fairy speaks Spanish
Spanish-speaking children and parents are now able to contact the Tooth Fairy in their mother tongue. America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation has launched the Spanish-language version of its America’s ToothFairy Kids Club: El Club de los Niños.
America’s ToothFairy Kids Club is an online program created for children ages 3-12. This club, created to raise awareness provides monthly personalized letters from the Tooth Fairy. It also offers tips, recipes, songs, contests and games to reinforce positive oral health behaviors among children.
“We are so pleased that El Club de los Niños will help a new population of young children and their families establish positive oral health behaviors and improve their overall health and wellness,” said Fern Ingber, America’s ToothFairy President and CEO. “We invite all interested families to register today to insure their children have the building blocks they need for a lifetime of healthy oral care. El Club de los Niños welcomes individual children as well as groups of children through participating schools, community health clinics, after-school programs and childcare centers to register for the club at www.ATNinos.org.”
The ToothFairy Kids Club also created a “Parents Corner” for parents and caregivers. The monthly publication offers practical tips for encouraging healthy habits at home. Decay in baby teeth and severe tooth decay, two common oral health disparities among children which can cause mouth pain and dangerous infections, can be prevented with education and oral health routines.
