Camden County College Dental Students Help 'Give Kids a Smile'

Last Edited:

On Friday, February 1st, Camden County College's Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students and staff, as well as area dentists from complete care teamed up for Give Kids A Smile Day.

The event provides free cleanings, other preventive care, and oral health education to local kids aged 12 years or younger.

Officials say the day is part of a national event aimed at giving uninsured children access to dental care so families can worry less.

"It's a great service and you want to teach kids at a young age on the importance of oral health because it's really linked to a lot of other factors that come into play," said Meghan Spinelli, vice president community and government relations of CompleteCare.

Each child at the Give Kids A Smile Day event was given an oral exam, cleaning, x-rays, and a variety of other services.
