Minnesota Dentists Announce Plans to Provide Free Dental Care to Needy Children in Minnesota
Date:1/6/2009

GIVE KIDS A SMILE PROGRAM

FEBRUARY 6-7, 2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Volunteer dentists are teaming up with dental professionals throughout Minnesota to provide their services for free to children whose families could otherwise not afford the care. The Minnesota Dental Association is sponsoring this unique outreach effort, called Give Kids a Smile, because dentists are committed to providing all children with dental care and improving access to care throughout Minnesota.

The free care will be provided on Friday, February 6 and Saturday, February 7, 2009 when thousands of dentists and other volunteers across the state open their offices and clinics to provide completely free dental care to children whose families cannot otherwise afford the care.

People interested in scheduling an appointment for their child may do so starting today by calling United Way 211 (just dial 2-1-1) or the statewide toll-free number 1-800-543-7709. Information on specific services that will be provided will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled.

This year marks the 7th consecutive year the Minnesota Dental Association is sponsoring Give Kids a Smile. The statewide effort has grown into one of the largest efforts to provide free dental care to children in need.

"Dentists are here to help children who need care. We spend these two days every year opening our offices without any charge to the public as one way of answering that call," said Dr. Lee Jess, president of the Minnesota Dental Association.

Patients seeking appointments should be under the age of 18 and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The Minnesota Dental Association is the voice of dentistry in Minnesota, representing 83% of practicing dentists. It is committed to the highest standards of oral health and access to care for all Minnesotans. Learn more at: www.mndental.org
