Losing your beautiful baby teeth is a very exciting time in any child’s life and as a tooth fairy, I’m so excited to collect those teeth and answer your questions. I have had so much fun receiving and reading your letters and the letters of children from around the world. I would like to answer some questions that I get asked a lot.

What does the Tooth Fairy do with all of the teeth?
I bet you’ve been wondering why I collect children’s teeth, and maybe you’ve come up with a few theories. We tooth fairies are busy building a beautiful, white castle for our queen. Only the best, cleanest teeth can be used for this fancy castle. Teeth that weren’t cleaned as well are ground up and used for paving stones. That’s why I leave more money for clean teeth with no cavities than for other teeth. If you want a bonus reward for your next tooth, make sure you are brushing and flossing every day so you can earn it.

Where do you live?
I live with all of the other tooth fairies in our secret kingdom. It is very beautiful there and we all work together to serve the children of the world.

Are there lots of tooth fairies or just one?
There are many tooth fairies just like me. We work together to collect the teeth of children everywhere and to reward them for well-cared-for teeth. Each tooth fairy operates a little differently, which is why I write to the kids I serve and other tooth fairies don’t.

What should I do to have healthy teeth?
We tooth fairies stress how important it is to brush your teeth every day. Flossing is also so important. If you have trouble, have your mom or dad help you. Also, visit Dr. Dorothy Pang often so that she can help you take care of your teeth. Have your parents call OPDSF Pediatric at 415-692-6670 to schedule an appointment with your dentist in San Francisco, California.
