A big welcome to our new worker Jess van Arendonk! She is an original Nelsonian from way back and has recently returned to the awesome top of the south from Melbourne. 

Jess is employed for 10 hours a week and gosh she's going to be busy! Jess is working with Nik with some of the youth programs and is currently sinking her teeth in the Wicked Tooth Fairy and getting a group of young people who are inspired to sort a Tahuna Festival!! Woo hoo!


If you need reminding about the Wicked Tooth Fairy see below! 


Wicked Tooth Fairy is the answer!


Wicked Tooth Fairy is a fun and friendly transportation and support service for young people aged 13-17 years who have difficulty accessing free oral healthcare services. Wicked Tooth Fairy will liaise with free dentists, schools or place of education or work and provide transport + support to fill out all the forms and provide advocacy when at the dentist. This is a free service!!
