Gives Kids A Smile, NASCAR help Chicago kids

As part of NASCAR race week in Chicago September 14-15, the ADA's Give Kids A Smile program held special oral health events at Chicagoland Speedway and the University of Illinois, Chicago.

The ADA's Give Kids A Smile program, ADA Foundation, Henry Schein, CareCredit, and 3M ESPE Dental have once again teamed up with NASCAR star Greg Biffle for a third year to put good oral health on the fast track for young fans of NASCAR. Across the U.S., Biffle, driver of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is helping deliver the message to children about healthy habits such as brushing for two minutes twice a day, flossing, visiting the dentist regularly and making smart food choices.

The yearlong ADA Give Kids A Smile education program, now in its 11th year, includes a national public service announcement featuring Biffle and ongoing outreach to parents and children through dental offices, community events, and media. Throughout the year, more than 1,700 Give Kids A Smile events will be held around the U.S., providing dental services to more than 400,000 underserved children.
