Eighth Annual 'Give Kids A Smile' Day Provides Free Dental Care to Children
Date:2/3/2010

Held at 2,000 U.S. locations during National Children's Dental Health Month

CHICAGO, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With an economy that might cause some parents to postpone regular dental visits for their children and tooth decay being the most prevalent chronic disease in America's children, the American Dental Association (ADA) is mobilizing dental professionals for the eighth consecutive year in a national campaign to extend necessary care to children and adolescents from low-income families.

On Friday, Feb. 5, during the eighth annual ADA Give Kids A Smile® program, some 50,000 dental professionals will volunteer and provide free services for over 320,000 children at 2,000 sites throughout the country.

Recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data show that tooth decay is on the rise for preschoolers.  In addition, children five to seven years of age are estimated to lose more than 7 million school hours annually because of dental problems.

ADA's major oral health outreach program
