Every year a group of dentists, with the Pinellas Dental Association, offer their services free of charge on specific one day for uninsured children in Pinellas County. This program is called the Give Kids a Smile program. This year it will happen on Friday, February 12th. To participate, children must be Pinellas County residents, between the ages of 4 and 17 and without health insurance coverage. Families need to go through a financial screening process that will be happening from January 4th through February 8th. For more information about financial screening sites or about the program, call 727-210-4222 or talk to the School Counselors at your local school. They are also able to do the financial screening. Appointments for dental treatment will be scheduled after the financial screening at the screening site.
