IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Friday, February 1, 2008 Pacific Dental Services (PDS(R)) and their affiliated offices provided a day of free dentistry to over 300 children in need. The 33 participating offices performed dental exams, digital x-rays, cleanings, fillings, sealants, and extractions for less fortunate children who do not have access to dental care.
PDS was excited to once again team up with the American Dental Association (R) for "Give Kids a Smile," held annually on the first Friday of February. The affiliated offices worked with over 50 non-profit organizations, including school districts, local churches, and shelters to provide free dentistry to needy children with poor or neglected oral health in California and Arizona. Some of the participating organizations included Olive Crest/Oak Grove (R), Families Forward (C), and the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (C). Major vendor partners; Proctor and Gamble (TM), Henry Schein (R), and Smart Practice (R), joined PDS by donating materials such as hygiene essentials, dental supplies, educational pamphlets, and fun stickers for all participants.
This marks the third year in a row that Pacific Dental Services has
participated in the annual Give Kids a Smile event. Their participation
continues to be strong and they've now served nearly 1000 children total. A
significant part of PDS is their Corporate Social Responsibility focusing
on outreach participa
