Tooth Fairy Learning Center (TFLC)
Located in our Garden Grove Smile Center, the TFLC is a fun and educational experience for children, parents and visitors. The TFLC incorporates Dr. Hy Gene’s Hideaway hands-on activities which engage children in the fundamentals of oral health and the importance of healthy food choices.

Other stations include a nutrition area, germ station, dental play area, and arts and crafts to keep kids smiling as they wait for their dental visits.
Healthy Mouth Healthy Body
