Say ‘Thank You’ on National Superhero Day

Superheroes are not confined to movies, television shows and books. They are among us every day.

We need these real-life heroes – heroes like essential workers standing on the frontlines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic – and they need our appreciation, now more than ever.

In honor of National Superhero Day on April 28, Delta Dental of Oklahoma and Captain Supertooth teamed up to create a popsicle stick superhero kit to help the community show its appreciation for local superheroes.

Essential workers, like those in healthcare, delivery services, grocery stores, convenience stores, truck drivers, and more, are working tirelessly to help the community during this unprecedented time. With more time spent at home, Captain Supertooth encourages you to help your kids show gratitude by using their imagination and our accessories to build a popsicle stick superhero.
