Eagan, Minn. (PRWEB) January 28, 2009 -- Delta Dental of Minnesota's Tooth Fairy will be visiting area classrooms to teach children the importance of oral health. Each classroom presentation includes a short segment from a dental professional on proper tooth brushing techniques and the importance of dental health. The Tooth Fairy will read oral health and tooth-related books to the children in attendance. Delta Dental of Minnesota is providing toothbrushes, toothpaste and stickers for each child, as well as a guide to children's dental health for children to take home to their parents.

"The Tooth Fairy is a custom in many households and presents a great opportunity for parents to talk with their children about practicing good dental health habits," said Dr. Richard Hastreiter, dental director for Delta Dental of Minnesota.
