In an effort to make local children smile a little brighter, the Dixie State University Dental Hygiene Program is teaming up with the Henry Schein Dental Supply Company, local dentists and dental hygienists to host the ninth annual Give Kids a Smile dental clinic.
The event will provide uninsured children with free preventive and restorative dental care such as exams, X-rays, fillings, extractions, sealants, cleanings and fluoride. Give Kids a Smile will take place from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, at the DSU Dental Hygiene Clinic in the Russell C. Taylor Health Science Center, 1526 Medical Center Drive.
Offering students across campus the opportunity to participate in this hands-on learning experience and take advantage of the university’s “active learning, active life” approach to education, the Pre-Dental Club at Dixie and students from DSU’s Department of Spanish will also volunteer at the event. Spanish students will serve as translators to ensure patients and their parents receive the treatment they need and understand the procedures they will be undergoing.
