SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA…
For most children and their parents, the celebration for losing a tooth involves a visit from the Tooth Fairy and some monetary reward. Left out of the equation is the person who cares for your children’s teeth: your dentist. That’s why South Weymouth Dentist Richard Wolfert, DMD, decided to join the celebration of National Tooth Fairy Day, February 28, with local Friendly’s restaurants in Weymouth.
Dr. Wolfert, who goes by the nickname of The Toothboss at his 1121 Main Street practice, donated 200 toothbrushes to the two Friendly’s Restaurants in Weymouth. The toothbrushes were given out to customers under the age of 12 who visit Friendly’s at 1021 Main Street and 415 Washington Street in Weymouth the week of March 4.
“It may seem kind of an unusual alliance, but an occasional sweet like ice cream isn’t the end of the world as long as you are consistently taking care of your teeth,” said Wolfert. “That means brushing, flossing and regular checkups at the dentist.”
In addition to toothbrushes, the gift bags given out included a coupon for a free checkup with Dr. Wolfert. That exam includes X-rays and a cleaning and can be used by any member of the family, not just the kids.
“On behalf of our younger customers, we’d like to thank Dr. Wolfert for his generous donation of the toothbrushes and free exam. It’s a great reminder for kids and their families to brush their teeth and get regular checkups at the dentist,” said Bobby Arruda, owner of both Friendly’s locations in Weymouth.
As part of his Tooth Fairy Day, Dr. Wolfert is also handing out Friendly’s coupons to younger patients with one stipulation: you must brush after every meal.
“You are never too young to start taking proper care of your teeth,” said Wolfert. “With all the studies linking dental hygiene or lack thereof to serious conditions, it’s critical for everybody to take better care of their teeth.”
Dr. Wolfert’s practice is located at 1121 Main Street in South Weymouth, Massachusetts, and accepts most insurance plans. The Toothboss also accepts payment from most insurance companies, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Delta Dental.
