Thousands Of Children Benefit From Give Kids A Smile Event
Thousands of children across America have benefited from a free event; Give Kids a Smile takes place every year, with dentists all over the country offering free dental treatment for children in need
The annual event is run by the American Dental Association and offices all over the country host free dental days for local children. The aim of the event is to provide much-needed dental care for children from low income families and those who do not have dental insurance.
The University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine is one of hundreds of dental schools and offices celebrating the event; on February 1st, the school hosted the Give Kids a Smile day for the 12th consecutive year. During the day, more than 800 children received free dental treatment and kids were treated to a visit from tooth fairies and the University of Buffalo teddy bear, as well as being invited to take part in fun games and activities.
The University of Buffalo has been providing dental care for children in the area since 1917 and the dental team visits more than 50,000 patients every year.
City of Buffalo Mayor, Byron Brown, attended the event, as he does every year and hailed the dental school as the best in the country.
