Most children begin losing teeth around age 6. If you want to bring the magic of the Tooth Fairy alive in your home, you’ll have to take up the task! This may seem like a daunting undertaking, so Dr. Stephen Woodard and our team are more than happy to provide you with tips.

Make a Tooth Fairy Kit
Making a Tooth Fairy kit can help you be prepared when your child loses a tooth. Keep coins or small bills in this kit. You can also keep tooth-shaped awards in your Tooth Fairy kit. Use these awards to compliment your child on a part of his or her dental hygiene that he or she is especially good at. Keep colorful paper and a fine-tipped in your kit to write letters from the Tooth Fairy to your child.

Leave Fairy Dust
Use glitter or glitter glue to leave traces of “fairy dust” on your child’s tooth fairy pillow or on your child’s letter from the Tooth Fairy.

Letters to and From the Tooth Fairy
As we’ve already mentioned, writing letters to your child from the Tooth Fairy can help bring the magic to life. Also consider having your child write to the Tooth Fairy. Letters for the Tooth Fairy can be left with the lost tooth for the Tooth Fairy to discover. Then the Tooth Fairy can leave responses along with any gifts.

We invite you to contact Stephen Woodard at 509-924-8585 for additional tips and to schedule your child’s next visit with our dentist in Spokane Valley, Washington.
