During the celebration, Kool Smiles dentists were joined by state and local officials to discuss the state of children's oral health in New Haven and Kool Smiles' commitment to providing increased access to quality dental care.

"As a pediatrician, it's great to have Kool Smiles in New Haven, as oral health is an integral part of overall health," said. Dr. Chisaraokwu Asomugha, Community Service Ambassador for Mayor DeStefano and a pediatric M.D..

Rhona Cohen, Advocacy Director of the Connecticut Oral Health Institute (COHI) explained why she felt it was important for COHI to be represented at the day's celebration. "Oral health is part of overall health. Our organization works to ensure access to quality dental care for all."

The opening of the New Haven office is another important step in Kool Smiles' efforts to address what the Surgeon General has called one of the greatest unmet needs in children today: oral health.

"Kool Smiles was founded with the vision of providing access to quality dental care in communities that have traditionally been underserved," states Dr. David Vieth, Senior Dental Director. "We are honored to provide such a valuable resource to the city of New Haven and look forward to helping ensure that there is access to quality dental care throughout this community."

To commemorate Kool Smiles' efforts to improve the oral health of New Haven families, Mayor DeStefano issued a proclamation declaring November 12th Kool Smiles Day. The proclamation was presented during the ceremony.

The new Kool Smiles office is located at 531 Elm Street. For more information about the ribbon cutting ceremony or to receive event photos, please contact Kelly Beaty at kelly.beaty@edelman.com.
