Free dental care services will be provided for children in need across Minnesota on Friday, February 1 and Saturday, February 2.
The Minnesota Dental Association’s annual Give Kids a Smile event is providing free dental care to children in need at nearly 100 dental clinics throughout the state.
To find a clinic with open appointments, just call United Way 211 (just dial 2-1-1) or visit mndental.org. Appointments can then be scheduled directly with the dental office.
Patients must be 18 years or younger and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Dentists will be providing free exams, fillings and sealants. Specific services provided at each location will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled.
Volunteers speaking multiple languages are also available at many locations to help with language barriers.
Minnesota dentists have provided free care to more than 70,000 children and donated services valued at more than $19.7 million over the past 16 years to Give Kids a Smile.
