Give Kids A Smile is the centerpiece of National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) which focuses on providing oral health education to ALL children. The Give Kids A Smile program was created to provide free chair-side education, screening, treatment, preventive and restorative care specifically to children in need.
Over 40,000 volunteers annually deliver care to more than 350,000 underserved children. Dentists, hygienists, assistants and staff volunteer their time. Dr. Cecilia Liu shared” this program is crucial to educating parents and children on the importance of oral healthcare – in some cases it is a chance to make a first impression with young children that we might not otherwise get”.
In addition to providing much needed care to underserved children, this event is meant to spotlight the ongoing challenges that disadvantaged children, and children with disabilities, face in accessing dental care. The media is invited to join the Coastal Pediatric Dentistry team to help raise awareness for the health care of our children. For more information please visit GiveKidsASmile.org
