Give Kids a Smile Day is Friday, February 6, 2009. Participating dental offices across the State are in need of qualifying kids to treat for this program. There are still 300 appointment slots available throughout the state. The majority of the appointments, however, are in the metro area, including Aurora, Boulder, Centennial, Denver, Englewood, Lafayette, Lakewood, Littleton, Lone Tree, Louisville, and Thornton. Click here for a list of specific offices and their contact information to make appointments.
The Colorado Dental Association would LOVE your help in communicating this opportunity to families.
Please remember that appointments are first-come, first-served, so the sooner families can call, the better. When making an appointment, the caller should say that he/she is "calling to make an appointment for Give Kids a Smile Day." Please note that only a limited number of appointment slots are available.
NOTE: To qualify, families must meet ALL of the following criteria:
- Be low-income and/or a part of the free and reduced lunch program.
- Be dentally uninsured (no insurance or CHP+ coverage).
- Unable to afford dental care.
