“Give Kids A Smile” Day!
NJ Top Dentists
Scotch Plains, NJ – February 2013
Each February, the dental community, both public and private sectors, come together to guarantee the delivery of care to thousands of underprivileged children who otherwise may not be able to access dental care with the “Give Kids A Smile” Day (GKAS Day).This year, the program was held on Friday, February 1, 2013 at locations across New Jersey represented in every county in order to bring awareness to one of the most prominent childhood diseases: tooth decay.
Services provided included oral hygiene education, screenings, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments, stainless steel crowns, and much more.Volunteers worked to guarantee the program was enjoyable and educational, while giving many children a brilliant first impression of visiting the dentist. Best of all, all procedures were done for free for those in need!
NJ Top Dentists would like to highlight two NJ Top Dentists who were providers in this program, KidZdent; and James J. Susack, D.M.D., P.C..Both practices have been reviewed, approved and featured on www.NJTopDentists.com for the last three years. “It is an honor to have had some of our NJ Top Dentists participate in such a noble event,” says Cristina Mendez, Director of Marketing & Client Relations.
KidZdent, a “Give Kids A Smile” participant located in Old Bridge, New Jersey, is dedicated to creating a lifetime of positive dental habits as well as guiding the development of the child’s dentition. Infants, children, adolescents, as well as the handicapped benefit from early preventive care and guidance. They are recognized for taking a young child, treating their teeth so they are free of disease, making their visits fun, guiding their teeth and jaws into proper alignment, and giving them something to really smile about.
“Statistics show that 40% of children have dental decay by the time they attend Kindergarten.Underprivileged children have dental issues at a much higher rate than those who regularly visit a dentist. The ‘Give Kids A Smile’ program was created to provide access to dental care for those children in need.As Chairman of the New Jersey ‘Give Kids A Smile’ program, I felt that if we offered a day of free dental care for children across our state, then we might be able to convert those children to become regular patients of a dentist who can care for them for life.Sometimes opening a door is all that is needed to give people a chance to improve their oral health.‘Give Kids A Smile’ is my chance as a leader in the field of Pediatric Dentistry to help underprivileged children to travel the road toward a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.” -Cavan M. Brumsden, D.M.D.

Dr. James Susack, whom has been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years in Pennsville, New Jersey, provided one day of free preventative and emergency dental care, and if necessary, made referrals for continuing treatment for children ages12 and under as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month.Children who came to Dr. Susack’s office on February 1, 2013 for the “Give Kids A Smile” event received a comprehensive dental exam, oral healthcare instruction, fluoride treatments, and dental hygiene materials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste.
“The office has been eagerly looking forward to this year’s events. It is an opportunity for us to give back to the community, especially in these hard economic times.
