Appointments still open for "Give Kids a Smile" event at NDSCS

Posted on 2/7/2013

Give Kids a Smile Day
Ages 3-20 welcome to register for free dental services February 22, 2013

The NDSCS Allied Dental Education Clinic will be participating in the annual American Dental Association's Give Kids a Smile Day on February 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mayme Green Allied Health Center at NDSCS in Wahpeton, N.D.

Appointments are still open. All patients must schedule an appointment in advance. A parent or legal guardian must accompany patients younger than 18 years. To schedule an appointment, please contact the NDSCS Allied Dental Education Clinic at 1-800-342-4325 ext. 3-2333 or 701-671-2333.

This nationwide event designates a day for free dental care for children who may have difficulty accessing dental care and for families with limited financial resources. The clinic will be providing dental care to individuals ranging in age from three to 20.

Services provided may include basic restorative procedures, simple extractions and patient exams. NDSCS Allied Dental students will perform cleanings, radiographs, sealants, fluoride applications and oral health education. Approximately $11,000 worth of donated services was provided to local children in 2012 with the help of volunteers, local and regional dentists, hygienists, assistants and the NDSCS Allied Dental Education Department staff and students.

"We are fortunate to receive support and/or contributions from the North Dakota Dental Foundation, the American Dental Association, local and regional dental community volunteers and Henry Schein and Patterson Dental," said NDSCS Give Kids a Smile Program Coordinator Lucinda Hanekom. "We are looking forward to helping children again this year and our goal is very simple - to provide quality dental services to those in need. We really are looking to give children, and their families, a reason to smile."
