NJ Top Dentists participate in “Give Kids a Smile” (GKAS) Day
NJ Top Dentists
Scotch Plains, NJ
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.This year, the program will be held on Friday, February 3, 2012 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 include oral hygiene education, screenings, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments, stainless steel crowns, and much more.Volunteers work to guarantee the program is enjoyable and educational, while giving many children a brilliant first impression of visiting the dentist.
NJ Top Dentists would like to highlight three NJ Top Dentists whom are providers in this program, and are also featured on our site: KidZdent; Sam Romano, D.D.D.; and James J. Susack, D.M.D., P.C. Best of all, all procedures are done for free for those in need! It is an honor to have some of our NJ Top Dentists participating in such a noble event.
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.
