What is Give Kids A Smile?
Give Kids A Smile is a national program of the American Dental Association. The program is aimed at raising awareness about the importance of oral health and the staggering number of children who don’t have access to care. As part of the program, thousands of dentists and volunteers across the country donate their time to provide free care for kids.
Annual program events kick off during National Children’s Dental Health Month in February.
“During Harbor’s Give Kids A Smile event, kids in our local community will have the chance to come in to see a dentist. We want to help every kid keep their teeth healthy and strong,” explained Dr. Matt Horan, executive director of dental services at Harbor Health.
“We’ll also offer parents and caregivers resources such as help with applying for insurance. We want to make sure everyone in the family continues to maintain good oral and overall health.”
