Over a decade ago, The American Dental Association started “Give Kids a Smile Day”, a volunteer initiative providing free educational, preventative, and restorative services to children from families who may not have access to dental care. Through this program, dental professionals all over the country volunteer their time and services to provide kids in their community with free dental visits. We are so fortunate to have Dr. Judson Werner’s Family Dentistry, a long-time “Give Kids a Smile Day” participant, right here in our own city. This year marked the 11th year that Dr. Werner’s office has invited Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue to celebrate this awesome day together!
Last week, more than 20 of our Club kids were given completely free dental check-ups including cleanings, dental hygiene tips, exams, fluoride and fillings. Over the years, our partnership with Dr. Werner’s office has provided our kids with annual dental visits that they otherwise may not have had access to.
The kids had an awesome time with Dr. Werner and his staff, who went to great lengths to make the experience a fun one from start to finish. We are grateful to have amazing partners like this who provide such important opportunities for our Club kids. Big thanks to Dr. Judson Werner and his whole team!
