Helping Sport Smiles with TeamSmile

On May 11, 2018, third year dental students from UMKC School of Dentistry, along with students from the school’s Students Take Action community organization and the school’s Pedodontic Dentistry Club volunteered at TeamSmile. First and second year dental students who had just finished finals for the year joined these these third year students at the event. Dr. Bill Busch was inspired to partner with professional athletic teams to provide free dental care to children after he heard the story of Deamonte Driver, starting TeamSmile. This TeamSmile event was held at Children’s Mercy Park with Sporting KC. Local dentists, students and volunteers provided over $46,664 worth of free dental care for the 123 children who received dental services.  Photos from the event.
