Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) February 01, 2016
Designed to raise awareness of the importance of oral health and collect oral care products for at-risk children, the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive will be held nationwide this February during National Children’s Dental Health Month. Bethlehem Dental Center will lead campaign activities in Bethlehem.
Local community members are invited to visit Bethlehem Dental Center located at 144 E. Broad St. throughout February to drop off donated oral care products. Donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse will be delivered to The Caring Place in Allentown for local children and families in need.
Community members donating to the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive are encouraged to share their experience by snapping a photo and using the hashtag #SmileDrive on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
For more information about these activities and how community members can participate, contact Dr. Leyla Abdulhay at bethlehemdentalcenter(at)gmail(dot)com.
“We are so grateful that caring individuals and volunteer groups across the country are helping ensure children receive the oral care products they need through the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive,” said Fern Ingber, America’s ToothFairy President and CEO. “The participation of Bethlehem Dental Center will help promote healthy smiles for local children while providing youth the tools they need to prevent the pain and embarrassment associated with tooth decay.”
