Dental Home Day

July 2017 Volume LII Number 4

Every Child Deserves a Dental Home

Oral health went hand-in-hand with happy smiles at the 5th Annual Dental Home Day. Pediatric dentists from around the country welcomed more than 80 children and their families to their new Dental Home at Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.C.

The children, many from underserved communities in the district, received free check-ups, cleanings, treatment and oral health education. They also played fun games with the dentists, enjoyed a relaxing story time and got to meet Dr. Bear.

Dental Home Day is the first day in a full year of free dental care for the participating children thanks to a Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Access to Care Grant to Children’s National Health System made possible by Sunstar Americas, Inc. Special thanks to Sunstar for supporting all five HSHC Dental Home Days!
