DETROIT, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Many children in Detroit will have a lot more to smile about.

With the help of dentists, dental hygienists, faculty, staff and students, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry will provide free oral health care services to more than 250 children from low-income families on Saturday, Feb. 7 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on UDM's new Corktown Campus.

UDM, in partnership with the Detroit, Oakland and Macomb District Dental Societies will once again participate in the American Dental Association's "Give Kids a Smile" program that began in 2002.

"There are so many children in our area that have not seen a dentist," said Mert Aksu, dean of the School of Dentistry. "UDM's dental clinic provides care to the homeless, the elderly and AIDS patients, and this event reflects the University's mission to help others," he added.

"Give Kids A Smile" is a program designed for children, ages four through 16. After each screening, participants will take home a free oral health kit containing toothpaste, floss ... and a big smile.
