MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – February is "Give Kids a Smile" month, a national initiative that helps underserved children get the dental care they need for free. Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) is joining the charge, along with over 1,500 organizations across the country.
Throughout the entire month, RCBC's Dental Hygiene Clinic will offer free dental care to children ages 13 and under. Services include screenings, cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants to protect permanent teeth.
“We care about the health and well-being of all of our patients, and since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve implemented COVID-specific protocols, including touchless temperature checks, a virtual waiting area, mask requirements, frequent disinfecting with medical-grade cleaners and more,” RCBC’s Director of Dental Hygiene Gail Vasilenko said. “Unfortunately, tooth decay doesn’t take a break during a pandemic, but neither will we. We look forward to serving our community during this great time of need.”
Give Kids a Smile aims to draw attention to the number one childhood disease: tooth decay. The event will take place at RCBC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic throughout February. To schedule an appointment for your child, please call (856) 291-4215.
