On March 19, local Cedar City, Utah dentists will be volunteering their services to low-income children who do not have any dental insurance.
Through the Iron County Give Kids a Smile event, qualified elementary school students will have the opportunity to receive free screenings, cleanings and dental work, according to TheSpectrum.com.
Moreover, children who attend the free clinic, which will take place at the Cedar Dental Center, can receive a voucher to see a specific dentist if extensive restorative dental care is needed.
Despite the free services that the event has offered the community over the last three years, Cedar Dental Center office manager Michelle Brown said the one-day clinic cannot provide the adequate amount of dental care needed to properly serve the underprivileged children in Iron County.
"One time a year is not really enough," said Brown, "but we get a large number of children checked and all the local dentists get involved even though it's out of only one office."
Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent avoidable dental health problems, such as infection, tooth decay, and cardiovascular disease, according to the American Dental Association.
