Concorde Career College in Kansas City is participating in the American Dental Association's Give Kids a Smile Program. This annual event provides free, desperately needed dental hygiene services to local qualifying children from underserved families and raises awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease occurring here and across the country.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in four children, aged two to eleven, have untreated cavities in their baby teeth, and many children enrolled in Medicaid receive no dental services throughout the year.
Concorde's Dental Hygiene Program Director, Sandy Roe, emphasizes that it is not only important to provide free services, but also to educate the community of the need to build local public and private partnerships to increase access to oral health care to solve this crisis.
On Thursday, February 2, 2012, from 8 am to 5 pm, the Concorde Dental Hygiene Clinic will be providing free services to an estimated 50 children within the Kansas City Metro Area. The clinic will be staffed with 2 dentists, 4 hygienists, 1 assistant and 24 dental hygiene students.
The Concorde Career College - Dental Hygiene Clinic is located at 3217 Broadway Street, Suite 500, Kansas City, Missouri, 64111. To make an appointment call - 1-816-595-2079.
