Mid-America Science Museum & Delta Dental Present Toothapalooza


Hot Springs, Ar. (January, 25th 2019) – Mid-America Science Museum is partnering with Delta Dental of Arkansas to host Toothapalooza, a free children’s oral health event Saturday, February 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free museum admission will be provided to the first 500 guests who participate in free dental screenings.

Toothapalooza at the Mid-America Science Museum will teach children healthy mouth habits using some of the biggest teeth around – dinosaurs. Kids can participate in dental-related STEM activities like dinosaur toothpaste experiments, dinosaur skull examinations, brush-bots, owl pellet dissection and more. Watch the museum’s very own Flossiraptor battle Plaquesaurus, plus there will be a special visit from the Delta Dental Tooth Fairy.

“We’re excited to bring Toothapalooza to Hot Springs this year,” said Jeremy Mackey, director of education at Mid-America Science Museum. “We hope to show children how fun the science behind having healthy teeth can be.”

Toothapalooza is presented by Delta Dental of Arkansas, and free dental screenings will be provided by local dental professionals from the Garland County Dental Society.
