On February 5th, Moses Lake Family Dentistry in Moses Lake, Washington, will celebrate National Children's Dental Health Month by offering free teeth cleanings, examinations and necessary treatment to any person 18 years of age or under.
"This is our way of giving back to the community and celebrating Kids' Dental Health Month," said treatment coordinator Robyn Ramirez, quoted by the Columbia Basin Herald. "It's a fun day for us who work here too, we dress up and try to make it a good experience for the kids."
Ramirez added that the staff will educate participating kids on the basics of oral health while cleaning their teeth.
Moses Lake Family Dentistry has been participating in the annual event for the last 11 years. It was initially designed for people with no dental insurance, but is now open to all children.
In 2009, nearly 90 kids received free dental care. This year, the staff hopes to beat that record.
According to the American Dental Association, regular visits to the dentist can help prevent avoidable dental health problems, such as infection, tooth decay, and cardiovascular disease.
