The team at Arizona Smile Designers recently took part in a charity event called Give Kids A Smile. We provided free dental treatments to local school kids in Cottonwood, Camp Verde and Greater Sedona. Our doctors were very honored to be able to help these children and to talk about how important good dental care is.
Launched in 2003 by the American Dental Association or ADA, the Give Kids A Smile program is designed to provide free oral health services and educational programs to under-served children. All across the country, dentists and their staff team up on Give Kids A Smile Day to provide a range of dental services and information that helps highlight the ongoing challenges low-income and disabled children face when it comes to getting the dental care they need. There are far too many children who don’t get regular dental checkups. These children often develop oral health problems that cause pain and lost days at school as well as lost hours for parents who must take their children in for emergency dental care.
There are all types of activities taking place across the nation on Give Kids A Smile Day including brushing demonstrations in schools, community screening & treatment programs and free private dental care.
Our Sedona & Cottonwood dentistry practice is committed to helping children achieve and maintain good oral health as having a healthy smile is so very important. All children deserve to have access to dental care. It’s simply not fair when kids cannot get the dental treatments they need due to the incomes of their families or because they’re physically and/or mentally challenged.
Our doctors were so happy to make some smiles a bit brighter on Give Kids A Smile Day! We are pleased we got the opportunity to pitch in and provide some amazing kids with free dental treatments including dental screenings, cleanings and fluoride treatments. This is a good time to remind parents to bring your kids in to for regular checkups and cleanings so your children can enjoy healthy & attractive smiles which they so much deserve!
