More than 500 children received needed dental treatments at no cost during Sharing Smiles Day, a national day of free dental care hosted by Kool Smiles on Sunday, May 21.
“We began Sharing Smiles Day in 2015 as a way to bridge the access gap for children without dental insurance coverage,” said Dr. Dale Mayfield, Chief Dental Officer for Kool Smiles. “Kool Smiles is proud to provide dental care to families with various forms of insurance, including Medicaid, but we also recognize there are many children in our communities who do not have adequate dental insurance coverage and whose families cannot afford regular trips to the dentist. This free care day is one of the ways Kool Smiles doctors and staff work to ensure every child has access to high-quality dental care.”
This year’s Sharing Smiles Day event involved the volunteer efforts of more than 700 Kool Smiles dentists and team members who hosted free dental care days at 43 dental offices in 12 states.
