Make fairy wands and wings, a box to hold your lost tooth, and more!“Healthy smiles start young, so it’s important to teach kids early how to take care of their teeth,” said Jonathan Landers, executive director of the National Museum of Dentistry. “Tooth Fairy Day is an opportunity to have fun while learning skills that will make an impact for a lifetime.”Kids can try their hand at fairy work by making a tooth necklace, decorating maracas, learning about animal teeth, and exploring the museum on a scavenger hunt to learn about false teeth, including the most famous false teeth of all (hint: they belonged to the first president of the United States). Plus, explore hands-on exhibits throughout the museum about all things toothy and how to have a healthy smile.Tooth Fairy Day is included with regular museum admission: $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for children, free for 2 & under and active duty military & immediate family. The National Museum of Dentistry, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, is located at 31 S. Greene St. in downtown Baltimore.For more information, call (410) 706-0600 or visit comment on this topic, go to
