The North Dakota State College of Science annual American Dental Association's Give Kids a Smile Day provided free dental care worth nearly $11,500 to 43 area children at the NDSCS Allied Dental Education Clinic.

Seven community dental professionals and six NDSCS Allied Dental department faculty and staff teamed up with 42 NDSCS Allied Dental Education students to provide free dental services to area children in February. Services included dental exams, radiographs, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and fillings.

"This is always an exciting and productive day for our dental clinic. This annual event is a great educational experience for our students and we are so thankful for the help and support of area volunteers," said NDSCS Give Kids a Smile Program Coordinator Lucinda Hanekom. "Their time and skills were critical to the success of this event and we were very fortunate to have had their support and assistance."

Volunteers included:

  • Dentists: Dr. Charles Duchsherer and Dr. Mark Sheils of Fargo, N.D., and Dr. Paula Sabbe of Wahpeton, N.D.

  • Hygienists: Judy McDougall of Fargo N.D., Barb Nelson and Brittany Summerville of Breckenridge, Minn., and Jaclyn Seefeldt with the North Dakota Department of Health
