On Sunday, May 20, Kool Smiles Dentists will be serving local children who are uninsured in the 4th Annual Sharing Smiles Day. From 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., children can receive dental exams, limited emergency care, extractions, fillings and sealants.

A limited number of appointments are available, so parents are encouraged to register their children here. However, treatment will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, and pre-registration does not guarantee your child will be treated.

On Saturday, June 9, Aspen Dental will provide dental care to veterans as part of the company's Healthy Mouth Movement. From 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., veterans will be able to receive dental services for free.

You can call 1-844-277-3646 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Healthy Mouth Movement has helped nearly 17,000 patients receive more than $10 million in dental care.
