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.”
