Give Kids a Smile Event Provides Free Smiles

“I’m ready to give another smile,” said one College of Dentistry student to another after he said goodbye to his young patient at the College of Dentistry’s 6th Give Kids a Smile Day on February 7. Part of the American Dental Association’s access-to-care program, the event provided free comprehensive dental care to children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford dental treatment. 

More than 200 faculty-supervised dental and dental hygiene students, residents, and faculty volunteered their time for the event, which is held at the college each February during National Give Kids a Smile Day, and again in October at a second College of Dentistry event.
