Local dentists to offer free exams for kids


Local dentists will be giving children free exams in the Month of February.

It's all part of National Give Kids a Smile Day.

The initiative is directed at under privileged children and giving them dental care that they would otherwise not receive.

Dentists say its important to teach kids the importance of oral health early on.

"With the diets and what kids are eating these days, and the fact that they're not really starting at a really early age, getting to the dentist as they use to," says Dr. Roger Pecina of Afdent Dental.

In addition to exams, children will also receive cleanings and x-rays all free of charge.

And it's not just Afdent participating, Mahoney Family dentistry is too, as well as several other Michiana Dentists.  For more information you can call Afdent at 574-277-2220 or Mahoney Family Dentistry at 574-217-4709.  Or you can visit the American Dental Association's website.
