Is it teething time for your little one?


Trying to teach your children about dental hygiene is NOT a walk in the park.


Thankfully, for most of us, the Tooth Fairy offers a helping hand, in showing little ones how important it is to brush, floss and mind their teeth. 


Recently, a father decided to seek the help of the tooth fairy, and his son woke up to find a letter from the fairy about dental hygiene, and we are certain all parents will applaud.


Henry Warren, proud dad of eight-year-old Sam, was finding it difficult to get his son to brush his teeth (been there, done that).


So he did what any wise parent would do — he called in reinforcements from “Barry T. Tooth Fairy,” — aka, the Tooth Fairy himself.



Barry T. Tooth Fairy wrote little Sam a letter, urging him to look after his teeth. 


The letter read: 


“Dear Mr. Warren,


This letter is to inform you that I have now taken receipt of your tooth and it is being duly processed in our system.


You will have noticed there has been a delay in your payment for the tooth. Mr Warren, I have to inform you that this is due to the condition in which we found said tooth.


We expect a certain amount of wear and tear on the teeth we appraise. However in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis.


We believe this is due to the lack of care and attention by yourself. We have detected more than trace amounts of Fanta and residual amounts of both cereal and chocolate which have not been removed by appropriate brushing technique.


We recommend you review your practice here as a matter of urgency.


Mr Warren we will accept the tooth on this occasion but we need your assurances that the condition of your next tooth will be significantly better or we will withhold payment.


Sincerely yours,


Barry T. Tooth Fairy”
