Free dental care will be available for up to 6,000 Minnesota children at more than 200 dental offices across the state on February 6 and 7 as part of the Minnesota Dental Association (MDA) Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) event.
Patients seeking appointments should be 18 years or younger and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. People interested in scheduling an appointment can call United Way 211 (just dial 2-1-1), or the statewide toll-free number 800-543-7709.
A list of clinics providing care is available on the MDA website. Information on specific services provided will be outlined when an appointment is scheduled.
Since Give Kids A Smile began, Minnesota dentists have provided free care to more than 60,000 young children and donated services valued at more than $15 million.
