Give Kids a Smile
February 3, 2006

Hudson Valley Community College's Dental Hygiene Department joined with dental health professionals around the country on Friday, Feb. 3 for Give Kids a Smile Day. The one-day annual event, sponsored by the American Dental Association, is aimed at providing free dental services for young children.

It's a way to raise awareness for the need for early and consistent dental care for all children. Forty nine children were treated at the college's Dental Hygiene clinic, part of an estimated 50,000 treated nationwide.
