Smiles in Abundance

Students and colleagues in The Dental College of Georgia and College of Allied Health Sciences brightened the smiles of approximately 125 Augusta-area children during Give Kids a Smile Day Feb. 5. The annual event is part of a nationwide initiative providing oral health screenings and treatments to underserved children. The Give Kids a Smile program, launched nationally by the American Dental Association in 2003, has provided more than 5 million children with free oral health care. In Augusta, more than 100 students, a dozen faculty members, residents and community dentists volunteered to provide cleanings, sealants and restorative dental work to children screened from Rollins Elementary School, Heritage Academy, New Holland Mennonite School and the university’s Healthy Grandparents Program, among other locations.
