This Friday (February 4th) our office will be participating in Smile KY! This is a nationally recognized community partnership providing dental education, screenings and treatment to school children in Louisville Metro and surrounding counties. It is coordinated by the Louisville Dental Society and the Louisville Water Company. Dr. Ken and Dr. Steve screened children at several of the schools targeted this year. From the screening, at risk children with limited access to care are invited for treatment.
This is an annual event in which our team participates. The ADA has called the program a model for community service. The campaign hopes to bring attention to what has been called the most common disease affecting U.S. children, “tooth decay”. Over 300 children receive free treatment the first Friday in February thanks to many volunteers.
Our office will be one of the sites for treatment. Our staff volunteers their time and talent to provide free services for these at risk children and their dental needs. We’ll all be busy this Friday with Smile KY!
