It’s a poorly kept secret that Flagstaff has its very own Tooth Fairy. Not to be confused with the Tinker Bell-esque pixie that exchanges monetary gifts for lost teeth, the “Flagstaff Tooth Fairy,” dental hygienist Jenny Zamora-Garcia, takes on a much more significant role in the community.

Often sporting a glistening tiara, wearable wings and a formal dress, Zamora-Garcia is known for her costumes and decades of dental service to the community.
