Midwest Dental donates dental care to Wisconsin children
March 11, 2015
More than 400 under-served children received over $150,000 in free dental care at the Wisconsin Midwest Dental offices on Friday, Feb. 6, as part of the annual Give Kids a Smile Day sponsored by the American Dental Association (ADA).
In total, 56 dentists and 220 team members at Midwest Dental gave their time to this important cause. Give Kids a Smile is the centerpiece of February’s National Children’s Dental Health Month, when the dental health community focuses on children whose families may not have direct access to regular dental care.
The Midwest Dental offices worked closely with local public health agencies, area schools, Head Start programs, nonprofit agencies, and youth and community organizations to identify children in need.
“It is truly remarkable to witness the number of Midwest Dental dentists and team members happily lending their time and skills on behalf of Give Kids a Smile,” said Dr. Elizabeth Rydell, chief dental officer, Midwest Dental. “We are appreciative to have had the opportunity to be a part of Give Kids a Smile since it first started more than 10 years ago and we look forward to continuing the tradition for years to come in our office communities.”
Midwest Dental provides complete family dentistry for patients of all ages and has locations throughout Wisconsin. For more information, visit www.midwest-dental.com.
