Delta Dental of Washington’s Tooth Fairy and Smile Power team visited Auburn and South King County this week, bringing surprise and delight while honoring Smile Makers, community members and local organizations who give back through volunteering, kind acts and other good deeds.

On Wednesday the Smile Power tour came to Washington and Elementary elementary schools with the Tooth Fairy to speak to students on the importance of taking care of their smile. The team greeted nearly 150 first-graders at Washington and nearly 100 kindergarten students at AJ.

The Tooth Fairy also read “The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist,” shared fun dental facts and handed out lunch bags and toothbrushes to children.

Each school receive a $500 donation to support the Auburn Public Schools Foundation’s Auburn Pantry project.
