‘Give Kids a Smile Day’ designed to bring dentistry to underserved children
Give Kids a Smile Day is one way the dental profession is responding to oral health issues among our nation’s poorest children. In the past few years there has been a marked increase in awareness of this issue, due in part to the public becoming more educated about the relationship between oral health and overall health. You may read more about this at www.ada.org.
On Friday, Feb. 5, thousands of dentists across the country will be donating their time and services to participate in the eighth annual Give Kids a Smile Day, and Frey Family Dentistry in Belmont is happy to be participating in this program.
Dr. Frey and his staff will be donating their time, skills, and the supplies necessary to provide underserved children (age 14 and under) with free complete oral exams, cleanings and preventive fillings (sealants). The event will begin at 8 a.m. at Frey Family Dentistry, 6220 Jupiter Ave., Belmont. All appointments are scheduled in advance.
Parents are strongly encouraged to register their children over the telephone at (616) 222-0202 to ensure their treatment on Feb. 5. Further information may be found online at www.freydental.com.
