BALTIMORE, MD: What do fairies do with all those teeth? The National Museum of Dentistry is inviting the public to find out on Tooth Fairy Day, to be held Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is telling people to grab their wands and put on wings to meet the Tooth Fairy herself during a during a day filled with “tooth-riffic, hands-on activities and fun.”

Kids will be invited to make fairy wands and wings, boxes to hold lost teeth 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 and under and active duty military and immediate family. The National Museum of Dentistry, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, is located at 31 S. Greene St. in downtown Baltimore.
