We Say, You Say: Northland Tooth Fairy

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Do you think the charges laid against the Northland "tooth fairy" are fair?

Northland woman Claire Wihongi-Matene is facing seven charges brought forward by the Ministry of Health due to manufacturing illegal dentures.

The charges include one of claiming to be a health practitioner and another six charges of performing a restricted activity. The Kaikohe woman could potentially face a maximum of a $190,000 fine and is currently awaiting trial.

Wihongi-Matene is defending the charges stating that she only wishes to help those that cannot afford basic dental care in her community.

"It started off with like aunties and uncles and you know the whānau and just helping them out and then, of course, word of mouth - they told their friends and next minute like I just had people coming from all over."
