To support children’s dental health needs, local dentists and their staffs will volunteer their time and materials to provide free dental exams and limited services to children, ages 3 – 18, who are under-insured (Medicaid/Title 19) or uninsured and have an economic need. A parent/guardian needs to call one of the offices and schedule an appointment prior to Feb. 1.
The total number of appointments will be limited and will fill up quickly. Parent/guardian attendance is strongly encouraged, but if one cannot attend the appointment with the child, a consent form must be competed at the dental office prior to the appointment.
