The Children’s Dental Health Center Gives Back at Our 2nd Annual Give Kids A Smile Event
Englewood Dental Announces its 2nd Annual Give Kids A Smile Event
February is National Children’s Dental Health month, and Englewood Dental will be sponsoring their 2nd annual Give Kids A Smile® event at Englewood Dental to provide an estimated 20 underserved children with free dental services. This year’s event will be held at Englewood Dental on February 5, 2016 from 9am to 1pm.
Give Kids A Smile is held annually to:
- Provide free, easily accessible dental services to qualifying individuals.
- Raise awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease occurring locally and nationally and create local public and private partnerships to increase access to oral health care to solve this crisis.
The American Dental Association (ADA) launched the Give Kids A Smile program nationally in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. Each year, about 350,000 to 400,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers nationwide.
