MEIGS COUNTY — With Halloween just around the corner, The Tooth Fairy made a special appearance in the kindergarten classes of Southern Elementary and Meigs Elementary this past month.

Joined by members of the Hopewell Health Centers dental team, The Tooth Fairy gave a presentation about healthy foods versus unhealthy foods and tips about brushing. Toward the end of each presentation, the Hopewell Health Centers’ dental team helped the students brush their teeth along to the song, “Tooth Brushing Song by Blippi”, found on YouTube. The kids loved it, according to a news release from Hopewell Health Centers.
