America's ToothFairy Smile Drive
This coming February - National Children's Dental Health Month - help children and teens in need by participating in the America's ToothFairy Smile Drive!
What is the Smile Drive?
The America's ToothFairy Smile Drive is a national campaign taking place during February, National Children's Dental Health Month, to collect oral care products (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse) for at-risk children and teens. These donated oral care products will be provided to non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations in thousands of communities nationwide.

How can I participate?
There are a couple of ways to help! It's easy!
Donate Oral Care Products!
Visit our National Smile Drive Directory (live January 2016) to see who in your area is participating in the Smile Drive and donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss or rinse for teens and children in need. If there isn't a Smile Drive near you, host your own!
Host your own Smile Drive!
This is a fun, easy way for student groups, dental practices, and other volunteer groups to help kids in their community. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:
- Complete a brief registration form.
- Identify a local non-profit organization serving at-risk children to receive your donations. Click here for a list of potential recipients.
- Collect donated products throughout February and deliver them to the non-profit you have identified.
- Tell us how many products were donated and where you delivered them using this reporting form.
It’s that simple! As a registrant, you will receive access to a free Smile Drive Toolkit with flyers, donation box labels, web badge, press releases and more – everything you need to promote your Smile Drive! You are also invited to come up with a unique on-site activity on one or more dates in February!
Hold a Smile Drive at Your Company!
Engage your employees in a corporate-wide Smile Drive. Invite employees to donate oral care products throughout the month of February and select an America's ToothFairy Affiliate or non-profit serving at-risk children in your community to receive the donations. You can even hold a fun competition to see which department or division can collect the most products. Register here.
Donate to the Toothbrush Fund!
Don't have time to hold a Smile Drive, but still want to help? Donate to our Toothbrush Fund! Every dollar you give will be used to provide toothbrushes for children in need.
Smile Drive Contest: How far will your Smile Drive reach?
Measure the reach of your Smile Drive and you could win a $200 Amazon Gift Card! At the end of February, calculate the distance of your Smile Drive using one foot for each product. Submit your number on Twitter with the hashtags #SmileDrive and #GoToothGo. If your Smile Drive goes the farthest, you win! Learn more here.
