Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day

August 22nd celebrates a dentist's favorite character, the Tooth Fairy!  This fun holiday acknowledges one of our beloved figures of early childhood years.  Folklore states that when a child loses a baby tooth, s/he places the tooth underneath their pillow, and the Tooth Fairy will visit during their slumber replacing the tooth with a gift (typically money). 

The Tooth Fairy is an American tradition with European roots.   For hundreds of years people have shared mythical stories about the loss of baby teeth resulting in various cultural traditions. 

In the Middle Ages, Europeans buried children’s teeth so witches and evil spirits couldn’t use them for voodoo.   The Vikings believed that children's teeth had magical powers that could help them fight in battle.  They would pay their children for their lost baby teeth, and warriors would string them around their necks.  The tradition in Northern Europe was to pay a tann-te or tooth fee when a child lost their first tooth.

Over time, people began to share stories about a Tooth Mouse who scampers around town and steals children's teeth in the middle of the night. The mouse tale evolved into the story of the Tooth Fairy who leaves treasures under children's pillows in exchange for their baby teeth.  The first incarnation of these traditions into the modern-day Tooth Fairy first appeared in print in 1927 in play for children by Esther Watkins Arnold.

Today, parents tend to view the fictitious Tooth Fairy as providing comfort for their children.  Research finds that believing may console a child experiencing fear or pain resulting from the loss of a tooth.  Tooth Fairy traditions are still popular today; kids all over the world place their baby teeth under their pillows at night in anticipation of a surprise in the morning.  At Madison No Fear Dentistry, we will be giving out Tooth Fairy boxes to all the kids who have an appointment on National Tooth Fairy Day!!   

National Brush Your Teeth Day!

There are 1,440 minutes in a day.  Your kid's teeth only need four of them. 

Kids spend up to half their walking hours texting, watching TV, playing video games, and using the computer.  Make sure they take the time to brush too!  Brushing just two minutes, twice a day can help prevent painful dental problems.  Oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million hours of school per year, and it causes their parents to miss 25 million hours of work per year.

Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease.  Dental decay is five times more common than asthma.  More than 16 million children suffer from untreated tooth decay:  39% of children ages 5 to 11 have had a filling, 20% of children ages 5 to 11 have cavities that are not filled, 38% of parents with children ages 5 or younger report they don't regularly help or monitor their children while they brush, and 60% of parents report their children sometimes or frequently forget to brush.  

Help your kids brush their teeth two minutes, two times a day for healthier teeth, fewer cavities, and better overall health!

Celebrate Earth Day: how we can make a difference

Happy Eco-New Year!
This year marks the 42nd Earth Day Celebration, the day we appreciate our planet and bring attention to the need to protect our fragile eco-system.  This year's theme, "Mobilize the Earth" calls us to action now, underscoring the urgent need to change our behaviors, noting: "the Earth can't wait."  While many of us are making planet-friendly lifestyle choices everyday (from what we eat to where we shop, to how we transport ourselves), who can we make the most of April 22nd?

As a dental office that makes the planet a priority every day, we like to think of Earth Day as our Eco-New Year.  Included here are some fun resources, easy to implement eco-tips, and a dash of inspiration to help you set goals for the year ahead.

A Dentist Celebrates Earth Day?
Indeed we do!  We are members of the Eco-Dentistry Association, an international, educational, and standard-setting organization for green dental offices.  Our office is among the high-tech, wellness-based denal professionals on the leading edge of greening our industry.  Check out the website for EDA at for oral products recommendations, and a look at the staggering waste and pollution statistics that are by-products of the old way of practicing dentistry.

Pat Yourself on the Back
Every New Year's celebration should include taking a look at what worked well in the prior year, and what initiatives we want to continue.  Earth Day is a great time to celebrate our planet-saving accomplishments. 

Practically Green website gives you points for your green habits, and helps you celebrate your successes to find your perfect shade of green:  Take their free eco-quiz and launch your profile to find out just how green you are.  They have thousands of ways to make a big difference.  When you implement a group of initiatives in one category, such as fitness or shopping, you earn a badge!  Practically Green is a great way to involve friends and family because it has an easy tracking system that helps you celebrate every earth-saving success.  Set up friendly competitions, or reward your kids for every badge earned. 

Inspire Others - Small Acts, Big Results!
Our global environment problems are so big that it can feel like one person can't possibly make a difference.  Not true!  One of the most important actions you can take this year is to share how easy and fulfilling it is to incorporate aspects of a green lifestyle. 

People who visit a green dental office are exposed to less radiation and fewer toxic chemicals than those visiting traditional dental offices.  Green dentistry is also preventive and wellness-based, offering green dental patients the opprotunity for early, less invasive and often less costly treatment options. 

Want to go greener? Join Madison No Fear Dentistry's "Save 90 A Day" Campaign to celebrate Earth Day!  Pledge to turn the water off while you brush your teeth and save up to ninety glasses of water EVERY day!  Register your commitment here:

Your Actions Count!  
The Earth Day organizers have set a goal of documenting one billion individual eco-friendly acts from around the globe in a campaign called "A Billion Acts of Green."  Log into the website,, and submit your green acts. 

Here are some tips for creating Earth Day goals:

1)  Involve friends and family: Invite those closest to you to join you in tracking and celebrating your eco-friendly successes.  Both Practically Green and A Billion Acts of Green are great ways to create a virtual green community.

2)  Green your food: While many of us are already purchasing organic or loal food and avoiding additives, look for other ways to reduce your food-print.  Consider committing to one meatless meal a week, or bringing lunches in reusable (and cheaper!) containers.  Maybe it's time to start your own garden!

3) Green your commute: Just as most of our lives are spent at work, for many of us, most of our travel is to and from work.  Consider taking a public transit, riding a bike, or carpooling a couple days a week.
