February is National Children’s Dental Health Month – and time for the Door County Medical Center (DCMC) Dental Clinic’s annual Tooth Fairy Fundraiser. The clinic provides oral-health care to children and adults from Door and Kewaunee Counties.
The fundraiser runs Feb. 4 to 8, 11:30 am – 1 pm, at DCMC’s Sturgeon Bay campus, where volunteers and “tooth fairies” promote giving during lunchtime each day, and donors show support by purchasing a white, silver or gold “tooth.” The sale will remain open throughout the month, and donors may also contribute at any DCMC clinic.
“The fun part is that we have tooth fairies – usually our employees’ children – who walk around the hospital collecting money,” said DCMC Dental Clinic director Tanya Fischer. “This year we’ll also have two adult tooth fairies, Jason Palmer of United Way and Dr. Gene Allen.”
