Free dental care services will be provided for children in need across Minnesota on Friday, February 5 and Saturday, February 6.
The Minnesota Dental Association’s 14th annual Give Kids a Smile event is expected to provide care to 5,000 children at over 150 dental clinics throughout the state.
To schedule an appointment call United Way at 211, or the statewide toll-free number 1-800-543-7709. Patients should be 18 years or younger and accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Teeth cleanings, fillings, sealants and exams will be provided. Specific services provided at each location will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled. Volunteers speaking multiple languages have been engaged at some locations to eliminate language barriers.
Since “Give Kids a Smile” began, Minnesota dentists have provided free care to nearly 50,000 young children and donated services valued at more than $15 million dollars.
