Contrary to a recent survey that the tooth fairy left 8% less under pillows this year (an average of $3.40 for every lost tooth) than in 2013, as reported by USAToday.com, the wanded warrior will dig deep into her fairy dust coffers during a Ball and Silent Auction slated for November.
A day with Dr. Gordon Christensen including a private mini course, facility tour and lunch for four at his Utah research center; a Nomad Handheld Intraoral X-Ray Device; and “On the Glass” tickets to Minnesota Wild vs. New York Rangers are among silent auction items at the Virtual Tooth Fairy Ball and online auction November 1-24.
The event, organized by National Children’s Oral Health Foundation: America’s ToothFairy (NCOHF), aims to help fund nonprofit clinics serving at-risk children according to a report in Mentor Magazine.
Dental companies and oral care professionals are invited to become virtual toothfairies without leaving home. Corporations may donate items to a silent auction or purchase virtual “tables” for $5000 each. Contributors’ grants will be named in honor of the donating companies. In addition, participating firms will be recognized in event-related communications, and will also be awarded memberships in the America’s ToothFairy Kids Club — a perk they can pass along to employees, customers and associates.
Group dental practices and individual clinicians are also invited to participate by bidding on auction items.
