Give Kids a Smile
February 19 starting at 8 a.m. 
St. Petersburg Health Department 
205 Dr. MLK Jr, Street North 

Eligible children and teens ages 4-18 will be provided with exams, X-rays, cleanings and sealants, all at no cost to their families (services are available to children and teens receiving Medicaid or have no insurance). No pre-registration is required; however, children and teens will be seen on a first come, first serve basis until all slots are filled. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of service.

The three Department of Health DOH-Pinellas clinics will open at 8 AM on Monday, February 19 for the American Dental Association (ADA) Foundation's Give Kids a Smile event providing no-cost dental services to children and teens at the following locations:

*             St. Petersburg:  205 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street N.

*             Mid-County:  8751 Ulmerton Road, Largo

*             Clearwater:   310 N. Myrtle Avenue

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 of 5 children aged 5 to 11 have at least one untreated cavity. The good news is cavities are preventable with daily oral health routines and access to dental care.

Karen Hodge, Dental Services Manager shares "Annual events like Give Kids a Smile help us continue to work towards our goal of giving all children the opportunity to have a cavity-free smile.”
