The Hawaii Dental Association is planning a free dental clinic for kids on Feb. 25th at the Waikiki Health Clinic on Makahiki Way (near Old Stadium area). The project — called Give Kids a Smile — is a 15-year-old program through the ADA Foundation that was brought to the state by the HDA Young Dentist Group as one of the association’s many efforts of reaching out to under served communities. HDA aims to use this program as a way to address the issue of Hawaii’s keiki having one of the highest rates of cavities in the nation due to untreated tooth decay.
Now in its third year in Hawaii, the Give Kids A Smile event is on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Makahiki Medical and Dental Clinic located in the McCully-Moiliili area. All children 18 and under are welcome and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The free dental clinic will provide keiki with dental screenings, teeth cleanings, and topical fluoride treatment. If additional dental services are needed, families without a dental home will be offered guidance on where they can seek dental treatment. The event will also feature entertainment and giveaways for its young guests.
