Proper dental care is essential for protecting your children’s health. For many families, financial burdens prevent their children from receiving necessary checkups and cleanings. This is why Dallas children’s dentist, Dr. Diep Truong, participates in the “Give Kids a Smile” event. In today’s blog, Dr. Truong discusses the free services offered at these events and how your child can participate.

Give Kids a Smile!

“Give Kids a Smile” was started by the American Dental Association in 2003. The goal of this program is to allow dentists to provide quality dental care and education to children often underserved in their communities. The program initially began as a small, one-day event, and has since spread year-round and nation-wide. In fact, last year alone over 450,000 were aided by this program, served by dentists and over 40,000 volunteers.

At Viva Dental Family Dentistry, we strive to offer the latest dental care to our youngest patients in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Dr. Truong involves the parents in every aspect of the process so they can understand their children’s dental health situation, and the importance of routine dental care. We help educate both parents and children on the correct ways of brushing and flossing, and tips for providing proper nutrition.
