Give Kids a Smile Day

The WVU School of Dentistry pediatrics clinic participates in National Children’s Dental Health Month and the American Dental Association’s national dental access program called “Give Kids A Smile!”. 

In one day, DDS and dental hygiene students, with the guidance of faculty dentists, treat more than 100 patients ranging in age from 1 to 17. The free visit for children includes exams, cleanings, appropriate X-rays if needed and fluoride treatments. Many times it is the first time the patient has visited a dental clinic.
