“Give Kids a Smile” 20 Jan 15

Local dentists are joining with dental professionals across the state to provide free care to children whose families cannot afford to pay for their dental care.

The service day is known as Give Kids a Smile, and will be held February 6th and 7th, 2015.

The Minnesota Dental Association is sponsoring the statewide outreach effort because the association says dentists are committed to providing all children with dental care and improving access to care throughout Minnesota.

Give Kids a Smile is an annual one-day volunteer initiative to provide free educational, preventive and restorative services to children from low-income families that do not have dental insurance.

Now in its 13th consecutive year, Give Kids a Smile has provided free dental care to nearly 60,000 children.

Patients seeking appointments should be under the age of 18 and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Information on specific services that will be provided will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled. You must have an appointment in advance of your visit.
