SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Park Avenue Dental’s Dr. Minni Sharma, DMD, provided free preventive dental care on Feb. 3 as part of the National Children’s Dental Health Month’s (CDHM) ‘Give Kids A Smile initiative. The one-day program for children 12 and under is part of the American Dental Association’s (ADA) annual push to bring attention to the number one childhood disease, tooth decay.
“Giving back to the community that has supported my practice is so important,” said Dr. Sharma. “This program, more than a decade old, will touch the lives of so many of New Jersey’s children who need oral healthcare instruction. I am proud to be a part of it.”
Children who came to Dr.Sharma’s Oak Tree Avenue office for the ‘Give Kids A Smile’ event received a comprehensive dental exam, dental cleaning, oral healthcare instruction, and free dental hygiene materials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste.
