|Children without access to dental care suffer from tooth decay, gum disease, pain and missing permanent teeth. Children in underserved areas suffer even more, with twice as much tooth decay as their more affluent counterparts. Tooth decay is the number one chronic illness in children – five times more prevalent than asthma! Thankfully Kids Smiles offers a solution!
Kids Smiles’ goal is not simply clinical care, but health empowerment.
It’s our mission to provide children in underserved communities with preventive and restorative dental healthcare, and innovative health education programs focusing on the prevention of dental disease and the development of positive, personal health behaviors.
Our award-winning model combines quality dental care with a unique education program to fulfill the core values on which Kids Smiles is based.
