The UMKC School of Dentistry hosted its seventh annual Give Kids a Smile day, Friday, February 3.

Beginning at 9 a.m., all of the 240 dental operatories in the UMKC School of Dentistry’s main clinic and virtually all of the school’s students and clinical faculty were devoted to providing free oral healthcare to disadvantaged children from throughout the KC metro area.

During the morning session student doctors delivered care to 230 elementary school students who had been pre-screened and referred to the School from Score 1 for Health, which is sponsored by the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and the Deron Cherry Foundation. The afternoon session was devoted to delivering care to dozens of elementary school students who had been referred to the School by the Miles of Smiles program, which serves disadvantaged children in the Olathe, Kan., School District.
