Michigan Dentists Giving Free Dental Care to Low-Income Children During Annual 'Give Kids a Smile' Program Starting February 6
Date:2/3/2009

LANSING, Mich., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm has declared February as National Children's Dental Health Month in Michigan, and starting Friday, February 6, thousands of children throughout the state will receive free dental services ranging from dental fillings to oral health screenings to complete treatment.

"Here in Michigan, one percent of the total Medicaid budget is allocated to dental services for both children and adults. Dentists want to be part of the solution, but we can't solve the access problem on our own.

It is shocking that dental disease is the most common chronic childhood disease in this country, five times more common than asthma. Yet, dental disease is p
