100 metro-area children; 120 volunteers; 1 day: Every February, in participation with National Children’s Dental Health Month, Creighton School of Dentistry hosts Give Kids A Smile. The School of Dentistry has sponsored the event for more than a decade—bringing together dentists, hygienists, dental students, dental hygiene students and other volunteers to give uninsured metro-area children much needed oral health education and care.
Making Dental Hygiene Fun for Kids
Our friendly students and volunteers take the time to talk to their patients and families, providing a new perspective on what “going to the dentist” means. Each child leaves with a goody bag of dental supplies and receives a range of free services including:
- Oral health exams
- Fluoride treatments
- Oral health education
