The ADA's Give Kids A Smile program, Henry Schein Cares, and 3M ESPE are teaming up to put good oral health on the fast track for young fans of NASCAR.
On October 15, the three organizations will host a dental health screening event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway's Kid Zone during the NASCAR Charlotte Race Weekend. Volunteer dentists and other dental team members will give underserved children free dental evaluations, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants at the event. Children will receive digital x-rays embedded in a wristband as their badge of honor for participating.
In honor of this special oral health program, NASCAR driver Greg Biffle's No. 16 3M car and uniform will sport the Give Kids A Smile, 3M ESPE, and Henry Schein Cares logos during the Charlotte Bank of America 500 Race.
The NASCAR Charlotte Race Weekend oral healthcare and treatment event follows a March 12 oral healthcare education event held during NASCAR SpeedFest, an annual appreciation day for NASCAR fans held at Charlotte Motor Speedway that approximately 7,000 children enjoyed.
