Tolosa Children’s Dental Center participated in the national campaign America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive — which is similar to a canned-food drive — to collect toothbrushes, toothpaste and other oral hygiene products for children and youth in need.
Local collection partners collected more than 1,200 individual items that will be distributed throughout the county.
The dental center is supported by Partnership for the Children of San Luis Obispo County.
