Showing off a dazzling white smile comes at no small cost, but some Michiana dentists are doing their part next week to promote good oral health in our area.
They will be providing dental care to low-income kids in our area free of charge.
It's a nationwide effort through the American Dental Association that provides struggling families with dental check-ups for their children at no cost.
Dentists, hygienists and other volunteers will be on hand to help with the program, giving kids free exams, cleanings, x-rays and fillings.
If you would like to sign your child up, there is still time.
Mahoney Family Dentistry is taking appointments Friday to provide free dental care at their 17901 Turners Drive location in South Bend. Cal 574-272-0466 to set up an appointment.
