Molli Corcoran has a job that makes everyone smile. She is the Tooth Fairy of Washington state.
As Delta Dental of Washington’s mascot, Corcoran, a 29-year-old Snohomish native, visits schools and youth organizations to speak to kids about the importance of taking care of their smiles.
February has been especially busy for the tooth-collecting fairy. This month is National Children’s Dental Health Month — when dentists, dental hygienists and assistants go out into the community to teach kids about dental health — and National Tooth Fairy Day is Feb. 28. Most recently, the Tooth Fairy attended the Imagine Children’s Museum’s Toothapalooza on Feb. 16.
“My goal is to have an honest connection with as many kids as possible,” said Corcoran, who earned her Tooth Fairy wings in 2015. “I want to make the experience as special and memorable as I can.”
