Give Kids a Smile – Mountain Dental Donates Free Dental Care to Children in Need
February 2012 – Seventy-nine dentists and over 280 staff at Mountain Dental provided $227,512 in free dental care to 660 underprivileged children on Friday, February 3, 2012 as part of the annual Give Kids a Smile day sponsored by the American Dental Association (ADA).
Give Kids a Smile is the centerpiece of February’s National Children’s Dental Health Month, when the dental health community focuses on children whose families may not have direct access to regular dental care. Mountain Dental worked closely with local public health agencies, area schools, Head Start programs, nonprofit agencies, and youth and community organizations to identify children in need.
“It gives me so much joy to participate in Give Kids a Smile,” says Dr. Jeff Moos, CEO of Mountain Dental. “Our team’s commitment to giving back to the communities we serve is at the foundation of our mission. Their efforts to ensure that children in need have the access to quality dental care and the education to achieve good oral health is not only inspiring, it is essential to the overall health and well-being of the children and families we serve.”
Mountain Dental, based in Mondovi, WI, is a team of hometown dentists committed to the health and well-being of families and communities. Please visit them online at www.mountaindental.com.
