WESTFIELD, NJ — It’s not often the tooth fairy visits twice, at least not for the same tooth.
But that’s what happened after 6-year-old Alex Miskolczi plucked a baby incisor from the bottom of the town pool days after Colette Sahm, also 6, lost the wiggly tooth and the children met to exchange, and celebrate, the curious find at a local dental office.
Following news of the tooth tale in TAPinto Westfield, the dental duo of Dr. Aimee and Eric Frank, the husband-and-wife team at Oceans Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, of Westfield, hosted the “tooth exchange.”
“The 'tooth fairy' herself even made a special appearance,” the Franks wrote. “They each got a gift bag with a special tooth pillow, swag and Yestercades gift certificate. Colette presented Alex with a thank you gift — awesome goggles with 'dino' teeth for future swimming scavenger hunt adventures.”
It was the second visit Colette received from the tooth fairy following a written plea she previously penned, something that landed her a reward, even without the traditional under-pillow payment.
“Dear Tooth Fairy, I lost my tooth and I am not joking! I actually lost it at the pool," she wrote. "Love Colette.”
