Heartland Dental Care Serves More Than 800 Children in Honor of National Give Kids A Smile(R)
Date:3/17/2009

EFFINGHAM, Ill., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 800 children received free basic dental services as part of national Give Kids A Smile, thanks to dentists at 57 Heartland Dental Care practices across the country.

Heartland dentists across the country provided more than $300,000 worth of dentistry (including cleanings, X-rays, exams and more) during Give Kids A Smile.

"Unfortunately, many children do not see the dentist on a routine basis for basic dental services," said Dr. Jordan Spencer with 21st Century Dental in Charleston, Ill. "Because of Give Kids A Smile, we were able to make sure they received the care they need and deserve." Dr. Spencer and his team treated 40 children during their Give Kids A Smile event.

Nearly one in four children ages two to 11 years old have untreated cavities in their primary teeth, according to the Centers for Disease Control. While poor diet and oral hygiene certainly play a role, cavities are actually caused by a disease called caries, which is five times more common than asthma.

The National Institutes of Health report that 80 percent of tooth decay is found in just 25 percent of children, primarily in low-income families. Public health programs such as Medicaid are designed to help underserved children, but utilization rates are low.

"It's great to be able to give back to the community in this way," said Dr. Veronica Thompson with Creekwood Dental in Bradenton, Fla. "I was proud of my team for volunteering to make such a positive impact on the lives of local children." Dr. Thompson and team treated 56 children during their Give Kids A Smile event.

Sponsored by the American Dental Association on the first Friday of February each year, Give Kids A Smile is designated as a day for dentists to provide basic dental care to children who may not otherwise receive it.
