North Carolina dentists and hygienists to serve needy children
Updated: 1/31/2011 10:59:49 PM

Children in North Carolina will be served this February through the Give Kids A Smile! program. On February 4, nearly 2,000 dentists across the state of North Carolina, supported by volunteers and hygienists, will provide a range of free dental services through the fifth Give Kids A Smile! day.

At dental offices, community colleges and impromptu clinics, low-income children selected based on their need will receive necessary tooth extractions, cleanings and fillings.

Last year alone, nearly 15,500 children in the state received treatment. North Carolina is considered one of the most successful sponsors of the Give Kids A Smile! program, founded five years ago by the American Dental Association (ADA).

Dr. Robert Hollowell, president of the North Carolina Dental Society, notes that the ADA program "not only addresses the growing need to care for under-served children, it helps dramatize the worsening plight of young patients who have no way to see a dentist."

The ADA suggests parents start to train their children in good oral health care techniques early on. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day are two critical preventive measures that the organization suggests.

Seeing a dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups is another. However, for many needy families, this is not always an option.
