Anyone with questions, or who is interested in scheduling an appointment for Feb. 1, may call the dental office at 320-864-3129.
The Minnesota Dental Association is sponsoring “Give Kids a Smile” because dentists are committed to providing all children with dental care and improving access to care throughout Minnesota.
“Give Kids a Smile” is an annual one-day volunteer initiative to provide free educational, preventive and restorative services to children from low-income families that do not have dental insurance. Now in its 10th consecutive year, “Give Kids a Smile” has provided free dental care to nearly 40,000 children. 
Patients seeking appointments should be under the age of 18 and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Information on specific services that will be provided will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled. You must have an appointment in advance of your visit.
