Promoting Dental Health through Tooth Fairy Board Game

Posted by Machias Savings Bank on Mar 1, 2017 3:00:25 PM

From the moment you step inside the office of Brewer Dental Specialty, you know one thing for sure-Dr. Carey Fister is all about kids and all about promoting dental hygiene.  Maybe it’s the bright yellow walls and Disney décor that give away her driving passion.  Or perhaps it’s the way she’s renamed all her dental instruments as Mr. Thirsty, Mr. Bumpy Bumpy, and Mr. Squiggly to entertain and calm young patients.  Whatever clues you pick up, from the toy box to the TVs mounted above each dentist’s chair, it’s all about kids.
