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 is easy!
Donate Oral Care Products!
Visit our National Smile Drive Directory to see if your dentist, local Walmart, or pharmacy is participating in the Smile Drive and donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss or rinse for teens and children in need. If you don't see them listed, invite them to participate! At Walmart, don't forget to pick up a FREE Kids Activity Pack with fun activities and membership to the America's ToothFairy Kids Club.
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. Click here to learn more!
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.
- Collect donated products throughout February and deliver them to the non-profit you have identified.

It’s that simple! Download your 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!
Prizes will be awarded to the student group, dental office, dental hygienist, corporation, and affiliate with the most donations! Each winner will receive a plaque and media recognition.
The 3 dental practices that collect the most oral care products will win great products from Centrix, Inc. and Pac-Dent International.
College and professional students will receive a letter of commendation for their participation. The top 5 student groups will receive mini-grants for their community outreach activities. To be eligible, you must submit a complete Smile Drive report by the deadline specified.
