EDISON, NJ - The Middlesex County College dental clinic was the home of bright smiles on Friday, Feb. 6 as about 60 children from all over the area visited for free dental care during “Give Kids a Smile Day,” a national effort to ensure children have access to quality dental care.

Nityaa Dave met the Tooth Fairy, otherwise known as Kayla Guido and dental student Kimberli Heman and learned the proper way to brush her teeth.

Local dentists, hygienists, and MCC dental students and alumnae volunteered their time and talents as they treated kids who received an exam, cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, as well as education on how to brush and floss.
