GIVE KIDS A SMILE DAY – APRIL 13



NSU College of Dental Medicine student provides dental services to a child during Give Kids A Smile Day.



WHAT: Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine will be donating dental services to South Florida children on Saturday, April 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  This occasion is known as Give Kids a Smile Day. This is an annual event sponsored with the assistance of the American Dental Association. NSU dental faculty, students and staff will provide basic dental services to children ages 4 to 18.

Each year, thousands of dentists and volunteers nationally provide donated oral health care services to over 400,000 children. More than 16 million children nationwide have tooth decay and NSU’s Give Kids A Smile Day hopes to help combat this epidemic by providing treatment and raising oral health awareness.

Last year, NSU’s College of Dental Medicine provided an estimated $75,000 worth of dental care to children. This year, the children being treated will also receive free toothbrushes and enjoy a festive atmosphere with face painters, magicians, music, the giant “Timmy the Tooth” mascot have volunteered their time for this project. They will be greeting the children and giving out autographs.

WHEN: The April 13 event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at NSU Health Care Centers’ Dental Clinic, located on NSU’s main campus on the corner of 30th Street and University Drive in Davie.
