‘Get Started as an Online Oral Health Coach’ Course NOW.
Hello! I’m Meliors Simms, founder and creator of the Holistic Tooth Fairy.
I had terrible teeth for years despite following dentist’s advice and living a healthy lifestyle. Finally I started to figure out how to heal my oral health problems and I began to organise my research and experience into the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way.
In January 2017 I began offering oral health coaching sessions by video and by April I was able quit my day job to become a full-time Fairy. Since then, I have coached hundreds of clients all over the world.
In 2020, demand for Holistic Tooth Fairy coaching surged when dentists were forced to suspend all but emergency care due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Thousands more people started searching for oral health home remedies and self help advice.
At the same time, the dental industry has been struggling with the impact of Covid-19 as one of the most at-risk professions for viral transmission.
Dental professionals spend their days sweating in full PPE trying to comply with ever-changing regulations.
Some hygienists have reduced hours as dental practices see fewer patients.
Others are losing their jobs as many dental practices close down under the financial pressure of the pandemic.
‘Get Started as an Online Oral Health Coach’ Course is a 12-week professional development programme.
I’ve designed this course so you’ll have everything you need to ‘Get Started as an Online Oral Health Coach’ and start selling online oral health coaching sessions by the end of the course.

THE COURSE EXPERIENCE
Live video calls
Every week you can attend a live video call. Over 12 weeks we’ll have 10 live classes which will include plenty of time for Q&A plus two group coaching calls with both presenters present so you can get indepth personal support.
If you can’t make it live, or you just want to review the material, you’ll have access to every class and group coaching call recording 24/7.
Between calls you can ask questions, share your progress and challenges, and interact with other students in our private Course Community, online group (off Facebook).
NB I may adjust the content or process midstream in order to meet the needs of the particular students who enrol. So, if the description doesn’t sound quite right for you, let me know so that I can consider changing it to suit you better.
- Every enrolled student will get two 1:1 video calls (30 minutes each) with Meliors Simms so you can ask questions and get detailed, personalised answers. The earlier you enroll, the earlier you can book in for your 1:1 call
- Students who complete the course and assignments* will be featured in a Holistic Tooth Fairy Circle, introducing you to my mailing list of 3000+ potential clients
*Completion means watching all calls, completing both assignments and having online booking & payment systems set up.
Do I need to be an internet wizz to become an online oral health coach?
You do need to have a reliable internet connection but you don’t need to be an expert! We’ll teach you the basics you need for an online coaching business with lots of support for you to practice and get comfortable with taking bookings and payments, hosting video calls, setting up an email list and marketing for free on social media.
When are the live calls scheduled?
Calls will be scheduled at different times to suit students in different time zones as well as the presenters in New Zealand/Australia. If it’s not possible for you to attend all the live calls, you can catch up by watching the call recordings.
How much time do I need to spend doing the course?
You’ll need about an hour a week to watch each class plus 20-30 minutes for activities at least 2.5 hours for each of the two assignments. Altogether you should plan to invest at least 25 hours over 12 weeks.

- I really do want to you to be happy with your investment in this course. If you decide its not right for you in the first 14 days, you can request a full refund (minus a $30 administration fee). After that, if your circumstances change and you are unable to complete the course, you can request a 50% refund before 30 August.
I’m in New Zealand, does GST apply?
The Holistic Tooth Fairy operates out of Raglan, NZ so GST does apply for folks living here! However, because most of my audience is overseas, the advertised price on this page does not include GST.
New Zealand residents must choose the payment option that includes 15% GST. If you are a NZ resident and you do not select this option, you will be invoiced separately for GST.
GST does not apply for non-residents of New Zealand.
Do I need to be on Facebook to participate in the Course Community discussions?
I try and avoid Facebook as much as possible, so this Course uses (Thinkific) to host the Course Community discussions as well as call recordings.
