On this episode of The Mountain Life, Lynn and Pete are joined by local, retired dentist Marielle Pariseau.

Pariseau is typically known around town as the tooth fairy, making certain all young people have access to dental healthcare.

Pariseau has now branched out to become a children's book author. During her time as a practicing dentist, Pariseau often told stories about her animal friends to redirect children’s attention away from the parts of her work that some young patients found scary. Out of that effort came the idea of a children's book  Billy Braveheart
