To qualify for free care with the Give Kids A Smile program, children need to be under the age of 21 and not currently covered by Medicaid or private insurance. Space is limited, so all program participants need to call first to schedule.

Access to affordable dental services for children continues to be an under met need in the United States. In fact, according to the Guide to Children's Dental Care in Medicaid, tooth decay is the single most common chronic disease among U.S. children. Lower-income and minority children are far less likely to have routine dental checkups and suffer disproportionate rates of tooth decay with 80 percent of cavities in permanent teeth impacting just 25 percent of U.S. children.

All Adventure Dental, Vision & Orthodontics locations will be celebrating Dental Health Month throughout February with special games and prizes to educate patients and parents about the benefits of regular dental care. See what patients have to say about their experience at Adventure Dental.
