Delta Dental of Washington’s Smile Power tour last week visited the Kent Valley Learning Center with Tooth Fairy readings to about 200 kindergartners.

The Tooth Fairy spoke to four separate classrooms about the importance of taking care of your smile followed by a reading of “The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist.” The Tooth Fairy shared fun dental facts, answered questions and handed out a copy of the book and a new toothbrush to every student in attendance.

The tour wrapped up last week, The Tooth Fairy and Smile Power team traveled around the greater Seattle area to celebrate local Smile Makers – local do-gooders who bring smiles to others – and visit local organizations.
