Dr. Dyken and her husband, Dr. Jason Dyken, have been married for twenty- three years and are blessed with three sons (Jace, Landon, and Colton) and one daughter (Carmon). Her children served as inspiration for this book. As the saying goes, they grow up way too fast. She hopes this book will motivate new parents to take a pause and give their kids an extra big hug with each lost baby tooth.

When you fell asleep, it was my turn. I flew down from the sky,

Shook Sprinkles Everywhere,

Grabbed your tooth and gave it a big hug.

What to Expect

My Son is about to loose his first tooth!

The Tooth Fairy visits children at night when a tooth is lost.  Parents, as Tooth Fairy Helpers, must care for their children’s teeth every day.  “The Tooth Fairy Helper” is two books in one.  The book includes a children’s story as well as a guide to help parents with their children’s dental care.  As a bonus the book includes “Tooth Fairy Receipts” labeled with the name of each primary tooth and the average age the tooth is expected to be lost.  The book was created by Renee Allen Dyken, DMD, MS, an orthodontist and mother of four.  She knows that children may not always believe in the tooth fairy, but they should always believe in their Tooth Fairy Helper.
