University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is offering FREE dental screenings and care to Bay Area children. In celebration of National Children's Dental Health Month in February, two Bay Area locations will hold community health events to help raise awareness about the importance of dental care. "Give Kids a Smile" was started by the American Dental Association in 2003 as a way to encourage dentists to connect with their communities by providing dental services to underserved children. These special events offer children and families the opportunity to learn about oral health, get questions answered and have fun.
