Last week Dr. Glenn and our staff volunteered at Christina Smile.



Christina’s Smile, a non profit mobile dental care facility, provides free dental care to children in need. Identified through social and community service organizations, children in each community served receive comprehensive, “most needed” dental treatment at no charge.
The Clinic is housed in a 53 foot trailer equipped with three dental treatment stations, x-ray equipment, and an instrument sterilization area. It travels across the US annually, bringing quality dental care to children in need from inner cities, migrant worker camps, and homeless shelters as well as to children in residential treatment facilities and those from uninsured, working poor families.
The clinic shows dentistry at its best. With the help of volunteer dentists and assistants, each child receives a comprehensive exam and immediately needed dental care.  Many of the children have lived with chronic dental pain or serious dental disease and deterioration for months, even years, before gaining access to the Clinic. The volunteer dentists perform extractions, fillings, root canal treatments, and provide crowns and sealants.


This fall, Dakota Children's Dentistry staff volunteered with Christina's Smile.  Christina's Smile Children's Dental Clinic is a non-profit organization that works in cooperation with the PGA Tour and Champions Tour to deliver comprehensive dental care to children in need. Poor dental health affects the lives of millions of children from low-income families and can cause pain and discomfort, infection, speaking and eating problems and low self-esteem.  We are very passionate about the work Christina's Smile's does, and volunteer our services every year.  We really enjoy working with the kids and supporting a wonderful cause.
