On Saturday, April 21, Midwestern University's College of Dental Medicine-Arizona and the Midwestern University Dental Institute hosted Give Kids a Smile, a free community event where CDMA students, supervised by faculty practitioners, provided dental care for local kids and education for their families at no cost.
More than 150 children ages 6 to 14 received over $20,000 worth of screenings and treatments including cleanings, sealants, fillings, and extractions at no charge. Families also received important information on proper oral health maintenance and disease prevention.
The Midwestern University Give Kids a Smile program is presented by Midwestern University's American Student Dental Association (ASDA) and is part of a nationwide initiative to provide underprivileged children with much-needed dental care.
