On Friday, February 3, 2017, the N.J. Dental Association will hold its annual “Give Kids A Smile!” event. This is a free program to help children who cannot otherwise afford to see a dentist. It is held one day a year and ensures access to quality dental care for all children ages 12 and under.
Services rendered include cleanings, screenings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, and fluoride treatments. Information on this program is available online at www.njda.org/gkas. Parents/guardians must call the selected location and make an appointment immediately, as appointments fill up extremely fast. All children must have a parental consent/medical history form filled out and signed at the time of treatment. Treatment will not be delivered without a signed consent form. It is the parent’s responsibility to transport the child to the selected location. Participating Ocean County dentists are listed below:
Ocean Health Initiatives - 732-719-9026 (offices are in Toms River, Lakewood & Little Egg Harbor)
Ocean Dental Expressions, Lakewood - 732-363-4477
If you are interested in this free program, please contact one of the participating dentists listed above immediately and make your appointment and request the necessary consent/medical history form.
